in the November 1988 issue. The magazine became

Popular Electronics comes home!
In September, 1958 I had the good fortune to join the staff of Popular
Electronics as Managing Editor. It was my first magazine position; my previous
experience had been in writing and editing equipment manuals and hard-cover
books. For an electronics buff and novice experimenter like me, that new
position was the chance of a lifetime. The thrill of the very first moment I
entered the editorial office has stayed with me till this very day.
