The 20th Anniversary Meeting of the Association for Computing Machinery: 30 August 1967
July-December 1987 (vol. 9 no. 3)
pp. 249-270

In 1967, a gathering of computer pioneers was held in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). This article presents an edited version of a recorded transcript of that meeting. It contains, in addition to many interesting anecdotes, a great deal of fascinating commentary on the attitudes of these pioneers toward the work in which they were engaged and toward the fruits that had been produced from those labors in the succeeding 20 years.
