Mr. Macintosh, seen here at the left side of the circuit board, was a mysterious little guy who was supposed to live inside each Macintosh, as represented in a drawing by the Belgian artist Jean-Michel Folon, commissioned by Steve Jobs.

While Andy Hertzfeld (right) was working on operating system software and other elements to get the Macintosh to market , Guy Kawasaki was serving as the chief evangelist for the new machine that would shake up the world.
Rod Holt was vice president of engineering during the early years of Apple, and worked on the Macintosh power supply; Ron Nicholson worked on the Mac's disk controller and CMOS clock chip; and Dan Kottke joined the Mac team in 1981, building prototype circuit boards for programmers.

Rod Holt worked at Atari, where Steve Jobs also briefly worked. When Jobs was having trouble with Apple II hardware, he managed to get the very experienced Holt to help out. He joined Apple in 1976 and left in 1984.
Wendell Sander was the designer of the Apple III, and created a single chip that included all the functionality Woz's disk controller. It was called the "IWM" chip, which stood for the "Integrated Woz Machine."
