There were several versions of this early Employee Handbook.  This one is not dated but we believe it is prior to 1956.  Subsequent handbooks, dated 1956, have just a few more pages.  It also must have been reprinted at some time as some copies have the rectangular CRT logo on the cover.  This logo didn't appear until nearly 10 years later in 1967.

The handbook is well illustrated with credit to Arnold Rantala who was a draftsman and cartoonist. This photo is of Arnold at his desk in the Sunset Plant.


This handbook also contains a large foldout directory page of the Sunset plant on page 98.  This handbook is a rare inside look at the culture and philosophy of Tektronix in the first decade.
