Abstract

On July 18, 1984, several persons assembled at the IBM Los Gatos facility to discuss the founding of AFIPS (the American Federation of Information Processing Societies). We could not gather together everyone involved in the formation of AFIPS, of course, but the group that was convened was a representative subset.
