That's incredible. Tektronix doesn't remember their own product????? They still remember their earliest scopes dating abck to the 1940s! I think you must have spoken to someone who wasn't interested in being helpful. Id try writing a letter directtly to Tektronix's corporate office to see what they would say.
In the meantime, we'll move on.
There are a lot of web sites that mention "beam penetration" CRTs. An excerpt from one of them is: http://www.css.tayloru.edu/instrmat/graphics/hypgraph/hardware/hardware.htm
Can use 2 methods:
First method (random scan) : beam penetration - have 2 layers (R,G) phosphors. Low speed e- excite R, very high speed e- excite G, intermediate do both so get yellow or orange-- so control e- beam voltage.

It's moving that e-beam voltage that you want to know about. Maybe Mr. Owen has some direct information to share.
From my own recollections, I began working at Bertan High Voltage in February 1979 and we moved from Syosset, NY to Hicksville, NY in mid-1984. What I think I recall is reading an being extraordinarily impressed by the Tekltronix article in Electronics by McGraw-Hill while seated at my desk while still in Syosset. That sets up approximately a five-year time frame in which to look.
I just wish I'd kept the article!
I'll see what else I can find.
