Biographical Note

After the development of the ENIAC was announced in 1946, the Moore School of Electrical Engineering held a special course to meet the demand for information about electronic computers. The course was held from July 8 to August 31, 1946, and it featured lecturers and students who later became prominent in the history of computing. Among the students was Frank M. Verzuh who took detailed notes of all the scheduled lectures. The course, which focused on the EDVAC and the ENIAC, has become known as the Moore School Lectures.
