History

 

1959

Leonard L Krause founded Electronic Data Technology to market paper based tape word processing equipment to generate Reader’s Digest like personalized form letters. EDT also sells the first calculator with a single button square root key. It had 26 circuit boards! Word Processing products evolved to cassette tape, diskette, and eventually hard-drive based computer systems.



1974

Leonard L and his son Len Krause founded Computer/Dynamics to market Basic Four computer systems.
