Description

The Gary Boone papers consist of microprocessor inventor Gary Boone’s professional and personal documents. This collection focuses on Boone’s work as a chip designer, primarily as it pertains to patents as well as litigation surrounding patents on which he was named. For example, this collection contains information on the legal battles between Gary Boone and Los Angeles engineer and inventor Gilbert Hyatt. This collection does not include Boone’s files from when he worked at TI designing chips. In addition to professional material, the Gary Boone papers include some personal documents such as correspondence, diaries, and journals. While the majority of this collection is composed of text materials, there are also A/V materials (VHS tapes), software (floppy disks, cassette tapes, CDs), oversized drawings, and photographs.
