Prior to his appointment as the PAL's executive director, he spent 38 years at Carlmont, 36 of them as head varsity basketball coach, with more than 300 wins. The Carlmont gymnasium was named for him in 2003."

Image of 2015.012.001 - General Electric Electron Beam Generator Electron Tube, 1957. This electron accelerator beam tube was stored for use as spare parts for "Beam 1", the first electron beam generator produced by General Electric for the Raychem Corporation. "Beam 1" was used by the Raychem Corporation in Menlo Park, California, and later by Tyco Electronics when it bought Raychem in 1999. It was the first electron beam accelerator ever put into commercial use. "Beam 1" was still in operation until 2016.

The appearance of the electron tube is that of a long metal cylander that extends into a ridged triangular cone. The cone connects to a titanium rectangular window at the base. Approximately 40" of the top of the tube is constructed with a cylindrical piece of translucent material with 11 equally spaced black enamel metal rings. The ridged triangular section near the base is 35" long and 19" wide and is painted yellow around the top. Additional hardware is attached near the middle of the tube and to the side of the triangular section. Two metal strips are attached at each end to the side of the triangular piece with four nuts and bolts.

An excerpt from General Electric Product Data Sheet A4610, August 1959 describes the Electron Tube. This datasheet is for a slightly later model that is of similar design to this artifact:
"ELECTRON TUBE - Permanently evacuated; multi-section construction. Electron beam emitted by hot tungsten filament; biased grid allows tube to conduct only during high-energy portion of input cycle. Electrons accelerated by voltage applied to intermediate electrodes…emerge through permanent window to treatment area.  /  Tube Window - 3 x 15". Made of titanium, 0.0075" thick. Cooled by forced air. Air-cooling nozzle included. (Compressor must be purchased seperately...must meet specifications appearing under AIR REQUIREMENTS-TUBE WINDOW  COOLING.)  /  Electrically controlled, air-operated, water-cooled shutter - for absorbing beam when bombardment of material in beam area is not desired, or for timed exposures."

One end of the wire is bent in the shape of a club. Club shape consists of three bulbs and a square-shaped end. From the square end, the wire continues two inches with a slight curve. The wire is kept in a small, flat plastic bag. Inside the package, is a white card with writing in black and red ink. Top, front of the card reads "Raychem" in white writing on a red rectangle. Below that is the product name and description in black ink. The back of the card describes in black ink how the product works: "Raychem's Tinel TM Club wire  /  uses the magic of shape  /  memory alloys to remember  /  its shape no matter how you  /  bend it!"

Image of 2016.001.002A-B - Dinosaur "A Strange Change Toy" Capsules, late 1960s to 1970s. Thirty-five lime green "time capsule" pieces made of irradiated plastic produced by the Raychem Corporation as part of "A Strange Change Toy Featuring the Lost World." The toy set was sold by Mattel, Inc., and also included a machine with a heated dome and a compressor device, tweezers, instructions, a 3-D molded plastic "Lost World Landscape," and an illustrated map. The square capsules expand into toy figures when heated. They can also be re-compressed back into squares and expanded again. The dinosaur figure (a) has four limbs with three toes on each foot and a curved tail. On the dinosaur's back is a fin, which is dented towards the head. On the left side of the head is an eye, nostril, and slightly open mouth showing teeth. The right side of the head is smashed and only shows a vague outline of an eye and a mouth. The bottom is partially hollow from mid-head to mid-tail. Thirty-four compressed square capsules (b-ii) are embossed with Mattel's logo. The other side also has a Mattel logo and a pressed circle to the bottom left of the logo with a number embossed in the center.  The numbers range in the 60s and 70s.
