    I had the privilege to know one of those GenRad fellows, the late Bill Thurston quite well when we lived (as did Bill) in Harvard, MA.

    I collect GR equipment and many of them were designed by Henry Hall, now retired and living in Florida. We email now and then and he's sharp as a tack.

    Can't say I like the Necco wafers any more than those Valentine hearts...or PEEPS for that matter...though I may take a walk out this afternoon and see if there are any Skybars about...those were advertised a lot when I was a kid, but you didn't see them very often. Don't forget Squirrel Nut Zippers also...

    I go by the old GenRad plant in Bolton on Route 117 at least twice a week...there may be some tenants in there, but it seems to have been perpetually for sale :(

    Had a soldier from Mass. that had his family constantly send him Necco’s to Germany the entire time he was there. He said you had to have grown up in New England eating them to like them....they remind me of Tumms but in different flavors. Now if Oreo cookies were going away I’d buy a closet full before they are gone...
