     Jean Marion Stafford was born on 30 June 1916 at Chicago, Cook County, Illinois.2 She was the daughter of LeRoy H. Stafford and Marian Alberta Hezzelwood.3,4 Jean Stafford was included in the census of her parents, LeRoy H. Stafford and Marian Alberta Hezzelwood, on 7 January 1920 at Chicago, Illinois.5 She was also included in the census of her parents on 10 April 1930 at Seattle, King County, Washington.3 Jean married Boris Dimitry Small, son of Dimitry Trophimovich Smolentseff and Maria Evseve, on 16 February 1936 at San Francisco, California.1,2 Jean Marion Stafford and Boris Dimitry Small appeared on the census of 9 April 1940 in Palo Alto, California.6 Jean Marion Stafford Linda Berg Stafford posted an essay written by Jean in 1993, "After graduating from Princeton, my father was at work on his PhD at the University of Chicago when I was born. When I was four my parents divorced. On the advice of his Doctor my father moved to Seattle, Washington. At age nine my mother took me to Seattle where my parents tried to mend their marriage. When I was thirteen my mother re-married; my father kept me. A neighboring family with a girl my age kept it from being a bleak life for me. There had been no contact with either the Staffords or the Hazelwoods. I was thirty before I met anyone from either family. It was the depression and father barely eked out a living working for the Seattle Post Intelligencer. I was a somewhat indifferent student, shining in classes I liked and barely passing ones I didn't. Sewing and music were my favorites. In reality I learned more from my father than from school. Keeping house taught me home-making skills and self-reliance. I had taken typing and expected to work for Greybar Electric, when I met Boris. He was a charming, handsome, romantic young man from a Russian Military family. They had been forced to flee during the Revolution and lived eight years in Harbin, China. Boris had two years at the University of Washington then became apprenticed to a Swiss Watchmaker. We knew each other three weeks when he went to California, found a job and asked me to marry him. I did this February 1936, shocking my father and friends. Boris was earning $25.00 a week and we had a suitcase apiece. The early years were shadowed by the death of our first son, Richard LeRoy, aged four months. Later brightened by our first daughter, Nina Irene. Boris worked in defense during WWII. Our second son Stephen Boris was born and we managed to get together enough money to open our own Jewelery store. It supported us for twenty-one years until cataracts prevented Boris doing very fine watch and jewelry work. 1947 was a banner year. Our second daughter Linda Louise was born and my Aunt Millie came from Ohio to visit us. (Mildred Stafford Boyer) My father died in 1942, and Aunt Millie and I had corresponded since then. Her visit meant more than I can express and she encouraged us to come to Ohio and meet the Stafford family. The years of raising the children and helping Boris in the store were not easy. We tried to expose them to worthwhile things and to educate them. Stephen became an attorney and died as the result of an auto accident at forty-one. He left a son, Matthew Stephen, who graduated from Loyola University last year. Nina holds a Master's in Business Administration and one in Telecommunications. She is Manager of Lockheed's Telecommunications's Department and recently installed the communications system for Lockheed's Moscow office. Linda is working on her Master's in Speech Pathology. She has two daughters, Hilary and Dimitria. I grew up in an era when women expected to be wives and mothers. That's what I am. My life has been one of happiness and sorrow. Boris and I will have been married fifty-six years in February. He has survived the loss of a kidney as well as a major heart attack. He has painted for pleasure for many years and given pleasure as well. He also finds joy (?) in cooking. Although he no longer plays golf or goes fishing, he plans menus, shops and cooks lunches for his friends! Boris does not like to travel but we have had several memorable trips. Across the States by car, with Nina eleven and Stephen nine, to Ohio to visit my Stafford relations. A trip to Russia, enriched by Boris's fluency with the language. We make a yearly trip to Washington, have made four trips through the Canadian Rockies to Jasper, three trips through the South West and criss-crossed California many times. We live in comfort and contentment. Boris paints and cooks. I have time to read, enjoy music, play bridge and with Boris, enjoy our great grand children Rami, five and Ryan, three. We are thankful for each day we have together and to have our family near us."7
Marion Pratt was one of Jean's oldest and closest friends. Besides the endless hours spent discussing their families they often traveled together. This included a girl's only tour of the British Islands in the early 1980's. . Immediately after Norman's death, Marion found comfort in the company of Jean and her husband Boris. Interestingly, Marion and Jean both died at the age of 93.8 Jean died on 20 March 2009 at Palo Alto, California, at age 92.9

     Harry Eugene "Bud" Burke Jr. was born on 29 January 1918 at San Jose, Santa Clara County, California.2 He was the son of Harry Eugene Burke Sr. and Marion Josephine Armstrong. Harry Eugene "Bud" Burke Jr. appeared in the census of Harry Eugene Burke Sr. and Marion Josephine Armstrong on 23 January 1920 at Los Gatos, Santa Clara County, California.3 Bud was part of the household during the census of his parents on 16 April 1930 at 1551 Emmerson, Palo Alto, California.1 Hary was also in the Mozart Ave. census of his parents, on 3 May 1940 at Redwood Township (Los Gatos), California.4 Between 2 November 1941 and 6 April 1946, during WWII, A recient graduate in electrical engeneering, Harry served with the US Navy achieveing the the final rank of Lt. Commder. Most of his time was spent on a submarine tender stationed in Perth, Australia. While it was never published, Harry wrote a book about his experiences which detailed the developement and maintanence of submarine radar.5,6 Harry married Marion Grace Walker, daughter of Ralph Morrell Walker and Gladys Morrell, on 20 July 1946 at Saco, York County, Maine.7 In 1960 while he was with Consolidated Systems and living at Pasadena, California, Harry was appointed by the Instrument Society of Americal as a delegate to the 1961 Internationl Measurements Conference: "Herry E. Burke, Jr., vicepresident and general manager of Consolidated Systems Corp., has been appointed by the Instrument Society of America as a delegate to the 1961 International Measurements Conference to be held next summer in Budapest. He will organize ISA participation in the meeting, which will be attended by leading scientists and engineers from throughout the world. "Burke has just returned from Moscow, where he attended the second annual conference of the International Fereration of Automatic Control. More than 1,000 delegates from 28 countries exchanged scientific views at the 14-day meeting. Consolidated Systems is and acssociate company of Allis-Chalmers, Bell and Howell, and Consolidated Electrodynamics".8 Harry Burke's professional career culminated in his establishment as an authority on bar coding. A memorial written by George Golberg provided a detailed look at Bud's professional life. *Harry Burke **1918-2000* Harry Burke died on November 14, 2000 in the VA Hospital in Palo Alto, CA. He was 82. According to his family, the cause of death was complications from Lyme disease, which he had contracted more than ten years ago. Burke was a Stanford University graduate and a World War II veteran of the submarine service. He became active in the AIDC industry in 1976, when the California company he was working for – Data Pathing Systems (DPS) – was purchased by NCR. DPS was a developer and manufacturer of factory data collection terminals and Burke was then a product manager. Soon after the acquisition, DPS incorporated bar code scanning wands into its devices and Burke received his indoctrination into the newly emerging technology. During the next 20 years, he remained totally engrossed in bar coding and became one of its most vocal and ardent supporters. After Burke left DPS in 1986, he devoted most of his time to writing and consulting. A native Californian, he was also a prolific poet and a naturalist who loved to explore the national parks and mountains. He authored four books (Automating Management Information, Volumes I & II; Handbook of Bar Coding Systems; Barcodes Galore), and wrote dozens of articles and monographs. These writings concentrated mostly on the factory floor applications of bar coding. Although his books were widely recognized by experts for their excellent coverage of the subject, they did not sell very well. Dick Meyers (Delta Services), who worked with Burke at NCR and remained a friend, remarked this past week: “Harry was brilliant, but his writing style was somewhat scholarly and did not lend itself to easy reading.” I first wrote about Burke in /SCAN Newsletter/ in December 1980. In rereading the 23 /SCAN/ articles that were subsequently published about him through 1994, I found that my reporting demonstrated an unabashed admiration for his unusual intelligence, acerbic wit, and total integrity. He did not abide fools nor tolerate dishonesty. Some considered him to be difficult, irascible and contentious, but he was one of the seminal thinkers of the AIDC industry. He was an honored, charter member of the AIDC 100 organization. Burke could leave a memorable first impression. George Wright (PIPS, Inc.), who developed the add-on bar code to the UPC symbol to identify magazines and books, still remembers his only meeting with Burke — at an early SCAN-TECH. “He seemed to be aware of the role I played with the add-on codes,” Wright recently recalled. “His comments were incisive and biting and not particularly complimentary.” What Wright may not have been aware of, at the time, was that Burke hated the proliferation of different bar code formats. He was a firm believer in the capabilities of just two or three symbologies to handle all applications. In April 1991, Burke wrote an open letter to the Postmaster General of the U.S. Postal Service about that agency’s “multibillion dollar program…to automate mail-handling by instrumenting the reading of ZIP+4 codes.” In typical Burkestyle he noted: “Unfortunately, the postal program…is compromised before it is off the ground….Postnet (a clocked bar code) is demonstrably well behind state-of-the-art; it is numeric only (not able to handle international ZIPs); it is difficult to print; it cannot be read by the inexpensive instruments now used throughout industry; its read-reliability is substandard; and it does not lend itself well for use in automating the sortation of either packages or bulk mail….By choosing its own symbology, the Postal Service is driving a knife into the very heart of one of the most important challenges U.S. industry has ever faced.” Burke’s contempt for the “establishment” was legendary. By his own admission, he disliked confrontation at meetings and preferred memos in which he could blast away at will. In September 1985, he wrote a 24-page memo to Roger Palmer (Intermec) attacking the bar code standards that were being established by the Technical Symbology Committee of AIM/US. “AIM is not a proper standardization forum,” Burke warned. “AIM members are responsible for maximizing the sale of their employers’ products [resulting in]…a direct conflict of interest.” Then, focusing his comments directly on Palmer, Burke admonished: “I do not see how you can perform your position as chairman of the Symbology Committee. You have a legal obligation to the stockholders of Intermec. To perform this duty, your decisions must promote the sale of Intermec’s products to the best you are able. As chairman of a key Symbology Committee, you have an obligation to those who are trying to use bar codes. I hold these two tasks to be in direct conflict.” No one was exempt from Burke’s criticisms. In August 1988, in response to an article I wrote about major changes anticipated for bar code scanning in the future, Burke replied: “You merely recount symptoms rather than outline what is really going on. In actuality, bar coding is breaking out of its labeling shell to become ‘barcodese’…an instrument-to-instrument communication technique….[that will extend into] every nook and cranny of corporate affairs.” During the past few weeks, in reviewing my 20-year association and friendship with Harry Burke, I have tried to assess his impact on the AIDC industry. He never invented any scanning device, or developed a successful bar code, or wrote important standards, or even participated in an industry committee. But we all knew that he was watching from the sidelines, ready to spot any inconsistencies, or to slice through the “baloney.” (In 1985, Harry actually wrote an essay titled “Bar Code Baloney”; it was about a curious syndrome that came over him every time he attended a seminar on bar coding and found himself uttering the word “baloney” over and over as the speakers attempted to educate their unsuspecting and naïve audiences.) Every industry – actually every company – should have its own Harry Burke monitoring events with a knowledgeable, irreverent, fearless eye toward preserving the integrity of its activities. The AIDC industry was fortunate to have had the original. We will miss him. Harry Burke, who was divorced many years ago, is survived by his three children, Kevin, 53, of El Granada, CA, Trina 48, and Jeffrey, 45, of Belmont, CA; and four grandchildren. by George Goldberg.9 Harry died on 7 November 2000 at Vetrans Hospital, Palo Alto, Santa Clara County, California, at age 82.10
