Darrell Igelmund ’69 writes, "Sold my electronic test equipment company and patents (Byte Brothers, Inc. of Seattle) to Jewell Instruments/Triplett of Manchester, NH. The factory was relocated from Seattle to New Hampshire in August. A big thanks to Santa Clara's engineering school for helping this once young guy from New York get off to a good start and standing by me after I received an F in second-year physics (a victim of too much fun!)"
