I've had a PDF of this before but it was crazy low quality, this one is very visible.
Lots more in new posts in the parent folder too: http://bitsavers.org/pdf/apple/lisa/development_history/articles/

Thank you Al.

You're welcome. I'm trying to put together the primary sources for the source code release
a few are difficult to find, like the Daniels IEEE article and the Dan Smith one

Writing the section describing the overview of the code is challenging since there never was
a single document that describes the system coherently. Bruce has never returned any emails
from me to talk about Lisa. He is supposed to be coming to the Lisa birthday event.

are pictures of the prototypes that CHM has, but everyone probably knows that.

Does the screen shot of the finished Office System show a Data Tower?

There are brochures for it. It was a third-party storage product sold by Priam for PCs and Lisa
