Description
This is a letter to Peter Drucker. It was most likely written by Ronald Greenwood, but has no signature. The author writes of Drucker's prediction years before that almost every home in America would have a computer someday. He also mentions his own Apple II and Apple IIC, and offers to fly out and instruct Drucker on word processing if he buys one. The sender also discusses a presentation of a video interview he did of three individuals who were a part of the Hawthorne Experiments. He then invites Drucker to speak at the next Academy of Management meeting. He closes with a mention of how the "entire American business academic world has fallen in love with the Japanese Jakedo system", and asks if any of Drucker's books have been translated into Chinese.
