Oppose the Draft

Rockville, MD: [1965]. 8 1/2 x 11", mimeographed from typescript.

A leaflet printing an eloquent open letter by both authors explaining their refusal to register the for the draft, ten years before Moore would co-found the Homebrew Computer Club, the most influential hobbyist group of the 20th century. Moore, who died in an auto accident in 1997, was an early activist in pacifist, anti-draft, and education reform movements, who urged fellow members of the HCC "to bring back more than you take."

The HCC included Steve Jobs as a member, and the first meeting of the group directly inspired the creation of the Apple Computer and the creation of modern Silicon Valley. A fascinating document of the socially conscious roots that laid the framework for Apple, whose CEO is a now prominent republican donor. Item #26276
