Who are these people?
Micro Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems (renamed simply
"MITS" in 1973) was located in Albuquerque from 1969 through
their closure in 1980. As the manufacturer of the first commercially
successful personal computer- the Altair 8800- MITS was largely
responsible for starting the personal computer revolution.
This photo, taken in May 1975 shortly after the Altairís introduction,
shows most of the employees at that time (total employment rose to
about 250 people by 1980).
The purpose of this page is to identify the people shown in the photo.
