Description

This Apple-1 is working.
Wendell Sander reported on the origin of this unit in the Retro-Restore Yahoo Group: "The story I heard (and I don't recall the source) was that the Smithsonian approached Apple asking for an Apple 1. Phil Roybal (one of the early marketing people, employee # 36) knew that Homestead High School had one. Homestead is where the two Steves went to High School. He approached the school and offered to trade a fully equipped Apple II for the Apple 1 and they agreed. My understanding was that the case was built at the school."
Randy Wigginton told a friend of at K'Fest in 2013 that he is 95% sure that his brother made the enclosure at high school.
No longer on display - the computer display has been dismantled.

According to the Museums website: Associated with this object are 2015.0001.01 (the microcomputer), 2015.0001.01.1 (a cassette interface), 2015.0001.01.2 (a power supply), and 2015.0001.02 (monitor with cable).


History

According to Smithonian Museum this Apple-1 was acquired in part through a generous donation from Malon D. Mimms, Jr. as well as gifts from Paul Neely, Steven Fink, and Dorothy Lemelson.
It belongs to the National Museum of American History.
