This article emphasizes the time period 1962-1970. Early in January, 1962 I asked Richard Hill and Werner Frank, two of my colleagues at the Ramo-Wooldridge Corporation, to meet with me concerning a new venture -- the starting of a software company. They unhesitatingly expressed their interest in the project. The seed for Informatics had been sown. By March the structural arrangements for the new company had been put in place. On the morning of March 19 Richard Hill and I started work in Wermer Frank's unheated living room.
