Description Edit | History

Everett Leslie Dreyer was a machine designer who in WWII was instrumental in design changes that affect weight and complexity of the aircraft components then in production. He also designed the automatic machine guns for a shooting gallery for an amusement park.

He created Maneuver, which was in development for 15 years (a predecessor game was "Red Bar"), was created because he was trying to find a scoring mechanism that did not use paper or pencil. Full information included in an interview in newspaper article from Nov 1, 1967 - https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/44547829/
