Penn Launches a Special Computer School

The University of Pennsylvania's Moore School of Electrical Engineering launched an inspiring summer school on computing that stimulated construction of stored-program computers at universities and research institutions. This free, public set of lectures inspired the EDSAC, BINAC, and, later, IAS machine clones like the AVIDAC.
