This photograph shows examples of a number of tie clips given to the sales force as souvenirs of meetings and events. The Hawaiian Tiki god image was designed for the 1967 sales conference and shows one of the first uses of the abbreviation FAIRCH. The bar with the original “Flying F” logo was issued prior to the acquisition of Fairchild Semiconductor Corporation by FC&I in 1959. The mounted wafer illustrates the 7/8” (2.3mm) diameter size of silicon wafers of the period. The pattern is believed to be the metal layer of an early Micrologic device. Donated by Bill Welling.
