Hobnobbing with Harbaugh: Biocells Revisited

September 1964 Popular Electronics

September 1964 Popular Electronics Cover - RF CafeTable of Contents

People old and young enjoy waxing nostalgic about and learning some of the history of early electronics. Popular Electronics was published from October 1954 through April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged. See all articles from Popular Electronics.

Hobnobbing with Harbaugh was a regular comic feature in Popular Electronics in the 1960s. Creator Dave Harbaugh chose topics ranging from husband-wife relationships where the husband is a technophile of some sort and the wife either purposely or unknowingly challenges his efforts to participate in his hobby, to contemporary (at the time) subjects such as this month's treatment of biocells. Like electronics, bioengineering was a mysterious field few understood that received a great deal of attention by comedians and sci-fi film makers.
