Resources on the history of word processors

I read a series of two interesting articles by Tim Bergin on the history of word processing software for early microcomputers, The Origins of Word Processing Software for Personal Computers: 1976−1985 and The Proliferation and Consolidation of Word Processing Software: 1985−1995. Among other things, I learnt mismanagement is what mostly doomed WordStar and WordPerfect.
