Texas ‘Country Boy’ Helped Launch Personal-Computer Era [WSJ]

John V. Roach, who has died at age 83, oversaw introduction of a small $600 PC at RadioShack in 1977


John Roach was born in Stamford, TX (about 40 miles north of Abilene) but moved to Fort Worth at a young age. He got his bachelor's and MBA from TCU and was involved in getting Tandy to get into the personal computer business. Many of us remember him as long-time CEO of Tandy (1981-1998).
