This is a written report of a talk given JANUARY-MARCH 17, 1958, at the Digital Computer Association, a local informal group. The Southern California area is today generally regarded as a center of activity in high-speed computing, having perhaps the highest density of machines and active, prominent people of any area in the world; the rise of this intense activity is traced from 1942 to 1957.
