1971 - Herbert was 34 years old when in March, Intel shipped the first microprocessor to Busicom, a Japanese manufacturer of calculators.

1997 - At the age of 60 years old, Herbert was alive when on August 31st, Princess Diana of Great Britain was killed when her car crashed into a pillar in the tunnel under the Pont de l'Alma bridge in Paris.
