Description

"Jake" Elizabeth Feinler was the director of the Network Information Systems Center at SRI. This group provided administrative services to the Network Information Center (NIC) for the Arpanet and the Defense Data Network (DDN), a project for which she was the principal investigator from 1973 until 1991. Earlier she was a member of Douglas Engelbart's Augmentation Research Center (ARC) at SRI which housed the second computer on the Arpanet. It was on this computer that the NIC resided initially. Jake is also a volunteer at the Computer History Museum. This interview discusses Ms. Feinler's time with the NIC and describes the extensive collection of early Internet papers she has donated to the Museum.
