Forsythe recalls some of her husband's difficulties in securing funding for computer projects, the resistance he encountered in his attempts to sell computer time to the private sector, and his eventual success in establishing a well-funded program in 1965. At the end of the interview, Forsythe briefly discusses her textbooks, which grew out of her efforts in the late 1950s to introduce computers into mathematics instruction in Palo Alto's public high schools. She also mentions her teaching positions at Stanford and the University of Utah.
