Mark IV: Evolution of the Software Product, a Memoir
January-March 1998 (vol. 20 no. 1)
pp. 43-50

This is a personal memoir of the development of an early commercial software product—Mark IV. As a "memoir," it would normally appear in the Biographies department, but we print it here because it relates so closely to the material discussed in the adjacent paper by Luanne Johnson.
