<p>Gordon Bell and Allen Newell authored <it>Computer Structures: Readings and Examples</it> in 1971, and with them, Daniel Siewiorek help create the follow-up book <it>Computer Structures: Principles and Examples</it> in 1982. In this Anecdotes article, authors Bell and Siewiorek share their recollections from writing these foundational technical books. The indirect effects of producing these texts had lasting imprints on subsequent computers at Carnegie Mellon University, Digital Equipment's PDP-11 and VAX computers, Bell's law describing computer classes, and even the computer artifact classification at the Computer History Museum.</p>
