I think Holm nailed that one. The logo is probably just a coincidence, as
it's pretty safe to say this board didn't originate in the 'Bad Old Days'

Seems like MCT in Shoreview, MN is our best working hypothesis. Would be
nice to come across an advert or other piece of corporate ephemera from the
early 1980s, to see what logo they used.
