    Outstanding! I read this and other electronics magazines avidly as a youngster (late 1960s) and now have a nearly complete collection of Popular Electronics from Vol. 1 No. 1 to about 1968, after which it becomes spotty. Those early issues are full of fascinating material. Later on, in the 1990s, I wrote articles for the “new” Popular Electronics (owned by Gernsback).

    Who else remembers Carl and Jerry stories?
