Art Fong met Bill Hewlett in the mid 1940s. He was the 6th man hired at Hewlett-Packard and their first Asian-American engineer. He was the only Asian American in his technical team at the power company and in his Navy radar technology group. Through his long career in Silicon Valley, it was his skill in science and computers that drew attention, not his race. Art was the lead designer for so many microwave instruments that he became known as “Mr. Microwave” at HP.
