"Ahh the good old days, when real engineers had beards [...]"

In my mainly UK experience beards were a rarity in the computer industry in the 1960s. Possibly many engineers were ex-military - who usually had had a ban on beards. The programming staff were mostly fresh-faced youngsters - and half of those were women. Many men sprouted beards in the 1970s though.
