Easterlin, Philip R. ; Western Union Telegraph Company, New York, N. Y.

TO MEET the increasing demands from its patrons for automation equipment, the Western Union Telegraph Company has completed the design of an extremely versatile data control system for use with high-speed electronic computers at centralized integrated data-processing (IDP) centers. This system serves as the main artery for data information which can be transmitted simultaneously from cities throughout the country over a Western Union telegraph network. As each unit of classified information is received, it is automatically processed into the proper data category for efficient and high-speed programming by modern computers.
