Bendix Corporation

Bendix marketed their first general purpose computer, the G-15, in 1956. It was based on a design by computer pioneer Harry Huskey who, in turn, based it on work of Alan Turing at the National Physical Laboratories in Britain (Huskey had worked with Turing there for a year).

Over 300 of the machines were sold, mainly in North America but three made it as far as Australia. Bendix later produced a transistorized version, the G-20, but eventually sold their computing division to Control Data Corporation in 1963.
