Jerry Manock is the industrial designer who designed the Apple II, Apple III and first Macintosh. This is a wonderful piece that’s no doubt come out because of Walter Isaacson’s book: Steve Jobs.
Manock is a great guy, very humble yet he was in the middle of the push to ship the first Macintosh and had a lot of interaction with Jobs.
I have a box of print material saved from those days showing the original Macintosh team and Manock is in there along with Jobs, Atkinson, Herzfeld, Smith, and many others.
The third to last paragraph describing his trip to an Apple board meeting many years later made me cry.
Great stuff, a must read for anyone interested in Apple history.
