Did you ever meet Art Schawlow?  He worked at Bell Labs from '51 through 
'61, but I know he was back a lot in later years.

Art was (according to the Nobel committee, anyway) inventor of the 
Laser, and he was an active proponent of using Microcomputers; trying 
to get the TRS-80 Model 1 into Stanford University to replace their 
Wang word processors.
