Abstract:

Warren discusses computer projects at the Moore School of Electrical Engineering, where he was a faculty member and supervisor of the EDVAC project. He discusses the EDVAC, the personal interactions of the project members, and the effect of the project on the Moore School. Central to his discussion are J. Presper Eckert and John Mauchly and their disagreements with administrators at the University of Pennsylvania over patent rights, their resignations from the University and the founding of their own company, the role of John von Neumann, the distribution of his 1945 draft report on the EDVAC, and its lack of acknowledgement of other EDVAC contributors.

Warren also discusses the University's patent policy, its effect on the project, and the inability of the Moore School to remain at the forefront of computer development.
