In 1970, Dennis J. Frailey generated his doctoral dissertation using a text processor on a computer, successfully producing plain-paper output that was accepted by Purdue University's dissertation office. This was before the days of word processors or widespread availability of plain-paper printers and the process involved several steps that may be of historical interest. This may also bring nostalgic memories to others who struggled as he did in those days prior to the advent of desktop publishing.
