Bob Moog Foundation Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary with New Moog Catalog Timeline & New R.A. Moog, Co. T-Shirt
via The Bob Moog Foundation
"We are thrilled to be celebrating 10 years of the Bob Moog Foundation! Over the life of the Foundation, we have educated thousands of students and trained hundreds of teachers through Dr. Bob's SoundSchool, preserved over 5,000 historic documents of all kinds through our work with the Bob Moog Foundation Archives, and inspired people of all ages through various exhibits and public interactive experiences.
Thanks to all of you who have continuously supported us along the way! We simply couldn't do it without you. Together we have made a significant impact in many, many lives.
Today we are celebrating by releasing a massive, historical timeline of Moog catalogs from Bob's earliest company, R.A. Moog, Co., founded in 1954, up through his introduction of Big Briar's Minimoog Voyager in 2001.
Check out the interactive timeline here.
The timeline is an testament of our ongoing commitment to both preserve and share the materials in our archives. We hope that you'll find the timeline a valuable resource to discover the history and evolution of Moog products and companies.
We would love to hear your feedback about the timeline. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments."
As part of our 10 year celebration, we are offering a very special t-shirt with the original, iconic R.A. Moog logo, from Bob's very first company, R.A. Moog, Co., which he founded in his parent's basement in 1954.
Featuring waveforms emanating from a musical staff into a vacuum tube, the logo is indicative of Bob's early dedication to science, music, and technology. Under the logo is the original tag line, "Devoted to the Development and Manufacture of Electronic Instruments for Musicians."
You can order your R.A. Moog shirt here!
Proceeds from all items from our online benefit our education and archival projects. Show some BMF love and help us inspire the future at the same time.
Thank you again for your ongoing support of the Bob Moog Foundation! We are honored to be carrying on Bob's indelible legacy, and to be inspiring so many people. We simply couldn't do it without you!"
