I do not know of such a list.

IBM printed up an excellent book some time back describing the POWER
architecture (OK, so the original fit on a few chips!) - including a list
of all of the people that had thier hand in the design of the first bunch
of RS/6000s.

If you ever want to know who designed important analog chips, look back in
Pease's column in *Electronic Design* - he has mentioned quite a few big
