Subject Keyword Computer history ♦ History
Abstract Many U.S. histories of the digital computer field have tended to be impersonal, with heavy emphasis on eastern universities and commercial developments. This article records the events of the early years in a personal way. The people, organizations, technologies, and computers of the 1945-55 period in the western part of the United States are described as they happened.
