1940-1980
Creator:
Lukoff, Herman, 1923-1979,
Extent: 6 cubic feet
Herman Lukoff, a pioneer in the computer industry, attended the Moore School of Electrical Engineering of the University of Pennsylvania from 1940 to 1943. Lukoff's career blossomed after 1950 when the Eckert-Mauchly Corporation was bought out by Remington Rand (later known as Sperry Rand) Corporation. The papers of Herman Lukoff mainly document his professional career at the Sperry Rand Corporation, although there is a small series of personal papers, primarily containing student notes while attending the University of Pennsylvania.

1908-1980
Creator:
Mauchly, John W. (John William), 1907-1980
Extent: 37 linear feet (37 boxes)
John W. Mauchly (1907-1980) was a physicist, teacher, and a leader in the development of computers. With J. Presper Eckert, he invented the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC), the Electronic Discrete Variable Automatic Computer (EDVAC), the Binary Automatic Computer (BINAC), and the Universal Automatic Computer (UNIVAC). This first installment of Mauchly's papers documents Mauchly's youth, education, early career at Ursinus College, his work at the University of Pennsylvania Moore School of Electrical Engineering, his partnership with J. Presper Eckert, with whom he formed two companies, the Electronic Control Company (ECC) and the Eckert-Mauchly Computer Corporation (EMCC), and his work through 1959 with Remington Rand/Sperry Rand after its purchase of EMCC in 1950. Early work in programming, coding, compilers, routines and subroutines, and most importantly, the application of electronic computers in government, business, and industry, as well as the history of the computer, is well documented. Moreover, this collection provides a glimpse into the personal life of the remarkable man behind this work through his interactions with family, friends, and colleagues.
