James E. Morrow (? – ?)    Please add referenced biography.

Tektronix engineer Frank Hood recollects:

[In 1951,] I started the design work on our first compact scope, the Type 315. [...]

A machinist, Jim Morrow, suggested combining some of the controls, by making them co-axial (that is, a shaft within a shaft and separate knobs.) We tried to purchase such controls but could find no one interesting in making them, so Jim machined sample controls. He even machined the dies to produce our own plastic knobs. All these suggestions were incorporated in the 315.
