Chronicle sister paper in Logan has connection to Apple history

One of our Pioneer Newspapers sister papers published an interesting editorial this weekend about the Logan, Utah, area’s obscure connection to the history of Apple computers.

Writes managing editor Charles McCollum:

I’d never heard about this piece of Logan’s past, nor had anyone else currently working in the Herald Journal newsroom, until Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died recently. A few days after his death, someone showed our city editor, Emilie Wheeler, an article in Businessweek magazine recounting the history of Apple and noting that the company had dumped 2,700 of its early “Lisa” computers in Logan in 1989 “in order to write off unsold inventory.”
