1972 American Computer Scientists Tour Computer Technologies of China, 1971-1975.

Severo Ornstein organized a trip to China from July 7-28, 1972 for a group of American computer scientists to tour Chinese computer facilities and participate in scholarly exchanges with Chinese computer scientists. The trip included six computer scientists and five of their wives: Severo Ornstein, Wesley Clark, Mary Allen Wilkes, Herbert Simon, Dorothy Pye, Anatol Holt, Ruth Holt, Alan Perlis, Sydelle Perlis, Thomas Cheatham, Jr., and Mary Cheatham. Images from this event can be found in Series 11.

MIT, 1963.

Contact sheets and 35mm negatives taken at MIT during the summer of 1963. The LINC development team had been relocated from the Lincoln Laboratory to another part of campus to build and develop LINCs for the NIH sponsored LINC Evaluation Program. Participants in the evaluation program came to MIT for an intensive workshop where they put together their own LINCs from a kit, and went to lectures given by the LINC team on computer programming, theory, and use.

Computer Research Laboratory (CRL), circa 1960-1980.

Contact prints, photographs, and 35mm negatives of projects and work done at or by Washington University School of Medicine's Computer Research Laboratory (CRL). CRL was later renamed the Computer Systems Laboratory (CSL). Projects include: LINC, macromodular computer systems (MMs), and the Turing Machine experiment. LINC components are named in this subseries, since there are multiple names for components the following terms were used and common alternative names are in parenthesis: Console module (operators console, control panel), Display module (CRT unit, scope module, oscilloscope module), Terminal module (data terminal box or unit), Tape drive module (dual tape drive unit), Electronics cabinet (CPU cabinet). The Final LINC Evaluation Program Meeting, known as Convocation on the Mississippi, took place at the St. Louis Medical Society Auditorium March 18-19, 1965 and images from this event are found at: FC186-S11-SS02-B23-F08 thru F16. Materials from a binder titled "Macromodular Systems Project. Computer Systems Laboratory. Washington University. St. Louis, Missouri" are found in their original order at: FC186-S11-SS02-B26-F01 thru F23. A Turing machine was built by Wesley Clark and Bob Arnzen for an educational experiment at Washington University during the mid-1970s, and the photos for this are found at: FC186-S11-SS02-B26-F50 thru FC186-S11-SS02-B26-F54. See also FC186-S08-B20-F06 for related Turing Machine materials.
