Mauchly explains and demonstrates how a computer works, including creation of the magnetic tapes that give instruction to a computer. The program concludes that no, a computer cannot think
Sperry Univac Point of View speech by John W Mauchly( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Address given at Sperry Univac's 1973 Point of View meeting in Rome. Mauchly discusses his early use of computers at Ursinus College in weather prediction and his determination that calculators using vacuum tubes to function at much higher speeds were feasible. He recounts his move to the Moore School of Electrical Engineering and his failure to interest anyone other than J. Presper Eckert in his research. He explains how they were able to obtain funding to build the ENIAC, the first electronic digital calculator, only after proposing its use for ballistic calculations. Finally, he describes the funding of the Eckert-Mauchly Computer Corporation UNIVAC computer by the National Bureau of Standards
The Critical-Path Method of Construction Control by Rodger T Dombrow( Book )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This discussion presents a definition and brief description of the critical-path method as applied to building construction. Introducing remarks consider the most pertinent questions pertaining to cpm and the needs associated with minimizing time and cost on construction projects. Specific discussion includes--(1) advantages of network techniques, (2) a comparison of bar charts and cpm, (3) the operation of cpm, (4) when cpm may be used, and (5) a summary of advantages to the owner, architect, and contractor. Specific aspects of cpm are--(1) activities, (2) time duration, (3) activity cost, (4) manpower assigned, (5) float time, (6) critical activities, (7) completion date, and (8) computer printout. This article is published in the proceedings of the ncsc, 40th annual meeting, princeton, new jersey, october 7-10, 1963. additional copies of the proceedings may be obtained for $2.50 from the secretary, council on educational facility planners, ohio state university, columbus, ohio.

John W. Mauchly papers by John W Mauchly( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This first installment of Mauchly's papers documents Mauchly's youth, education, early career at Ursinus College, his work at the University of Pennsylvania Moore School of Electrical Engineering, his partnership with J. Presper Eckert, with whom he formed two companies, the Electronic Control Company (ECC) and the Eckert-Mauchly Computer Corporation (EMCC), and his work through 1959 with Remington Rand/Sperry Rand after its purchase of EMCC in 1950. Processing of the remainder of the collection is ongoing and this finding aid will be updated as additional material becomes available. This portion of the collection is divided into three series: I. Youth, education, and early career; II. Moore School of Engineering, University of Pennsylvania; and III. Eckert-Mauchly partnership. For detailed information on each series, please see the finding aid. Researchers should be aware that there is limited material on the development of the ENIAC which was a classified War Department project. Whenever possible, John Mauchly's original order has been maintained. As a result, researchers may find articles, writings, and other material in multiple folders within the collection. Arrangement of correspondence has been maintained as it was organized either by Mauchly in his early years or by his secretaries during the Eckert-Mauchly partnership period. When acronyms or abbreviations have not been fully described, it is because the full name is not known. This collection will be of value to scholars studying the development of computers, in particular the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC), the Electronic Discrete Variable Automatic Computer (EDVAC), the Binary Automatic Computer (BINAC), and the Universal Automatic Computer (UNIVAC). Early work in programming, coding, compilers, routines and subroutines, and most importantly, the application of electronic computers in government, business, and industry, as well as the history of the computer, is well documented. Moreover, this collection provides a glimpse into the personal life of the remarkable man behind this work through his interactions with family, friends, and colleagues

Oral history interview with John W. Mauchly by John W Mauchly( )

in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mauchly describes his involvement with the ENIAC and EDVAC computers in this interview. Mauchly explains how his work in the 1930s on weather statistics led him to experiment with electronic calculating devices, and how this became an active project when he joined the Moore School of Engineering faculty in 1941. Mauchly recounts his early conversations with J. Presper Eckert on the feasibility of replacing electromechanical relays with thousands of vacuum tubes. He then turns to the Army's funding of the ENIAC computer for use in preparing firing tables, and the important role of Herman Goldstine in securing funding
