This article is an account of the development of the Control Data 6600 computer first developed in 1964. Of historical interest is the design team approach adopted by Control Data in which a small staff of engineers was isolated from the main operations of the company. Some review is made of the design process as well as the unique features of the machine. The article also includes some comments in retrospect about the results of certain of the initial design objectives.
