Remembering Bill Campbell
Campbell was an ardent supporter of CHM, shown here as host of the Museum's 2004 Fellow Awards
The Museum notes with sadness the passing of legendary Silicon Valley CEO Bill Campbell. Besides leading large successful companies like Intuit and Claris, Campbell was a close friend and advisor to a great many technology leaders, investors, and young entrepreneurs. Often known as "The Coach" for his ability to offer wisdom behind the scenes, he was captain of the Columbia University football team in 1961, where he picked up his breezy, often colorful, style. Though he shunned the spotlight, Campbell made a huge impact on Silicon Valley through the many lives he touched over three decades. Campbell also was a loyal supporter of our Museum, believing in the value of learning the lessons of history, and for that we are forever grateful.
