Bruce, I was 59-64. So we could have been in the same or sister classes. I remember we had just arrived at Reno 11/59 and had KFC take out for Thanksgiving with another SAGE family at the motel.

I almost forgot to mention the 'fun' time we had during the Cuban Missle Crisis.

My hire date was 06/19/59. I retired 6/92. Art

[QUOTE]Originally posted by RVDriver:
Old "EMR" Sperry bought us 1972, Moved to Roeville Minnesota plant in 1972, retired in March 2000. Started with ASI in 1966, (the company changed names 7 times) Sperry changed names 7 times, worked with some of the same people 34 years, retired with 7 of us left in 2000."""

I worked for ASI in 66,67 also known as EMR computer division in Bloomington, MN. Don't know if you are talking about the same company or not. I was in engineering prototype checkout. Previously worked for Control Data.

Moved on to field service with SDS "Scientific Data Systems" later bought out by Zerox and became 'Xerox Data Systems" later sold to Honeywell when Xerox decided to get out of the computer business. Currently I am a consultant for telecommunication services + other titles. Plan on retiring in 2008.

Oh the memories....

Doug

Right Doug, 8001 Bloomington Fwy, worked there fron June of 66, then transfered to Roveville MN and retired in 2000, there were about 8 of us "old" EMR employees left (at the Roseville Unisys plant) when I retired. I worked Checkout under Dave Wade, he was still at Unisys when I retired.

Bruce,
You have a PM.

I was like about 23-24 years old when I worked there.
