Early Days at the Palo Alto Research Center

Has anyone worked at the Xerox PARC between
1972 to 1980 here ?

I would love to know how was the work atmosphere back then.

Cracking stories are more than welcome...

I'm particulary interested with the Alto, WYSIWYG projects which I believe were managed by Butler Lampson (now working for Microsoft)

"Dealers Of Ligtning" is the best book I have read that covers this period.
