'Charles P. Thacker Dies at 74; Helped Design Early Personal Computer'


Quote:
'"When I was 8 years old, he would read to me from 'The
Feynman Lectures on Physics,'" she said, referring to Richard
P. Feynman, the Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist, "and
explain to me how bitmap displays render fonts. He'd talk about his
work even if we had no idea what it was. Everything he worked on was
this great big adventure for him."
