Abstract

This summary of and commentary on developments in computing over the period 1950 to 1990 has been commissioned by Harvard University Press for a second edition which they are preparing of ""A Computer Perspective"", originally published in 1973. this lavishly illustrated book was based on an exhibition designed for IBM by the late Charles and Ray Earnes and has been out of print for many years. The long-lost photographic plates of the book have been recently found, so making a new deition possible at least. The present test is intended as a replacement for the brief account at the end of the first edition which summarizes developments upto 1970, and has similarly been written to fit within just four printed papers.
