Popular Computing on eBay for $150+

One reference says that Yates was a hardware engineer who, with Roberts and
Jim Bybee, designed the Altair before Gates and Allen were on the scene.

Another reference identifies Yates as a former Air Force officer with an
aeronautical engineering background:

Couldn't find anything about van Baalen, but if Yates is not Gates, then it
is likely that van Baalen is not Allen.
