Henry F. Sherwood is an important person! He was born Heinz Weizenbaum, barely escaped Hitler's Holocaust, and came to America. He joined the Army in WWII and fought in some of the most horrific battles in the Pacific Theatre. It was during this time he changed his name. After the war he enrolled in the University of Detroit and graduated at the top of his class. In 1955 he entered the field of computers and never looked back. Henry received the Price Waterhouse Award for his work in optical character recognition. John Diebold offered him the directorship of Diebold Research Program-Europe. While there Henry began the clandestine facet of his life, an undercover agent for the CIA. The East German Secret Police (STASI) figured him for a spy for all the wrong reasons, and a host of agents compiled a six volume dossier on Henry.the secret files! Henry eventually left Diebold and began his own computer consulting company, gradually withdrawing from business because of diabetes. You'll be surprised at the world leaders he met, and how he impacted the computer industry. We owe him a lot!
