The IBM 701 Computer at the General Motors Research Laboratories

  • George F. Ryckman


The author remembers 3.5 hours mean time between failures for the 701—an excellent record. He recalls the beginning of SHARE and also what many regard as the first monitor on the 704 or on any IBM computer. Michael Chancellor was the Applied Science representative, and Warren Hume was the branch manager.
