Newell describes his introduction to computers through his interest in organizational theory and work with Herb Simon and the Rand Corporation. He discusses early funding of university computer research through the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute of Mental Health. He recounts the creation of the Information Processing Techniques Office under J. C. R. Licklider. Newell recalls the formation of the Computer Science Dept. at Carnegie Mellon and the work of Alan J. Perlis and Raj Reddy. He describes the early funding intiatives of the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) and the work of Burt Green, Robert Cooper, and Joseph Traub. Newell discusses George Heilmeier's attempts to cut back artificial intelligence, especially speech recognition, research. Newell compares research at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Stanford's Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and Computer Science Dept. to work done at Carnegie Mellon. Newell discusses the creation of ARPANET and describes the involvement in the research community in influencing ARPA personnel and initiatives.
