Description

From University Video Communications' catalog:

"A panel of pioneers of the 1940s and 1950s discusses their experiences which range from programming the world's first computing machines to developing biomedical and graphical applications for computers. This video provides an opportunity to hear and learn the hidden history of the period and confirm that Ada Lovelace and Grace Hopper were not the only female contributors to the rich history of computing! These pioneers remain role models for women in computing today."
