Abstract:

The collection contains Laboratory for Computer Science (LCS) administrative records of directors Edward Fredkin and Michael Dertouzos, and associate directors Joel Moses and Albert Vezza. Records include research proposals, reports to funding agencies, correspondence, minutes of meetings, and other materials documenting the lab's relationship with corporate and government sponsors from 1963 to 1988, and other administrative matters, including shifts in research priorities from emphasis on time sharing in the 1960s and early 1970s to automatic programming, distributed systems, multiprocessing, strategic computing, and other areas; fiscal policies; the creation of a base of support for research; the legal status of data, copyright of software, and privacy in interconnected computer systems; the position of computer science in the MIT curriculum; and the administrative aspects of projects including CTSS, Multics, MACSYMA and the Multiprocessor Emulation Facilty.
