If you haven't already, I recommend you read Bruce Horn's paper about Xerox PARC, its GUI work and the Lisa/Macintosh. Bruce was involved with both Xerox and Apple and gives a really good description of the Xerox and Apple GUI history.

Another great article about the Lisa/Macintosh user interface is from one of the designer's of the Lisa Desktop Manager ("Lisa Finder"), Dan Smith. shdesktop

The following provides lots of good info about the Xerox Star user interface.
