Howard looks to have been an Apple Basic Color Monitor. He probably killed himself because of his extremely fat, fuzzy dot pitch and low refresh rate. What a horrible, bulbous display! They weren't selling very well (gee) so Apple sold a lot of these at a discount to the education market [citation needed; forgot where I read this]. My high school had a lab full of them, all attached to LC 475s. :-)
Thanks for excellent episode as always guys! The freemont factory video was really interesting, thank's for the link.
