That could have been a local thing. At MIT, the first MIT-built LISP
Machines, also housed in H960 racks, had custom logo panels reading "LISP
Machine", with an illustration of a LISP two-part cell, with pointers (to
other, un-shown, cells). I still have one... (the panel, not the CADR).
PS: In a previous message, I wrote "KA-11"; I meant, of course, 'KA-10'.
Got -11's on the brain.. ;-)
