Connie Wilson was an engineer in CRT.  Peter Keller, a former Tek engineer who wrote an encyclopedic review of CRT technology, mentions how he very much admired the T5470 electron spot quality, especially compared to competing HP CRTs of the time.  Connie was the designer of that CRT.  (Peter Keller, The Cathode-Ray Tube: Technology, History and Applications Palisades Press, 1992, p. 114.)
