See Bill Gross' Old Keyboard ... and Password!

News summary by MFWire's editors

If you want to know Bill Gross' old password or see some of "his old desk toys," head to Washington next month.

Sadie Dingfelder of the Washington Post reports that starting next month, Gross' old Bloomberg Terminal keyboard, a pair of fuzzy dice, a Beanie Baby bear, a Beanie Baby bull, and his Monroe Bond Calculator from the 1970s (which he was still using during the 2008 financial crisis) will be on display in the new "American Enterprise" exhibit at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.

"Taped to the keyboard is a piece of paper with his employee ID and password -- a practice he keeps up today," the Post writes.

"Sometimes you come into the office at 6 a.m., before having a cup of coffee or two, and think, 'What's my password again?' It's a helpful reminder for a 71-year-old," Gross reportedly told the paper.

The Pimco co-founder and star of the star bond mutual fund PMs shook the investing world last fall when he moved to Janus [profile], where he now PMs the Janus Global Unconstrained Bond Fund.

The Post reports that, in addition to Gross' stuff, the new exhibit will also feature "Eli Whitney's cotton gin, a creepy singing baby doll invented by Thomas Edison and the napkin upon which economist Arthur Laffer famously drew a graph to explain supply-side economics to Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld in 1974."
