The von Neumann-Ortvay Connection
Fall 1989 (vol. 11 no. 3)
pp. 183-188

Three Hungarian scholars present a revised chronology of von Neumann's life. The correspondence between Ortvay and von Neumann published here allows insight into the early development of von Neumann's ideas about automata theory and "the computer and the brain."
