The QBasic Forum Tribute to Mac McLamore
Hilliard Moffett McLamore, 72, died on June 14, 2008 at 6:30 p.m., at his home in Vienna, Virginia. As one of the first computer programmers, Mac started working for IBM in 1959 in Kingston, NY and he was quickly promoted and transferred to the Washington D.C. area, where he met his future wife, Gudrun Larsen of Denmark. In 1967, Mac moved overseas to work for Investors Overseas Services (IOS), and later, World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva, Switzerland. In 1974, he moved back to the Washington DC area for good, and worked as a database administrator for Boeing Computer Services (BCS). Throughout his career, Mac kept time with the rapid-fire changes in computing, and upon retirement, he devoted himself to The QBasic Forum. No matter how much he knew, he was always willing and able to learn more.
