Whirlwind I: A High-Speed Electronic Digital Computer
Rathbone, R. R.
This booklet gives a general description of the Whirlwind I digital computer developed at the Servomechanisms Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Project Whirlwind was initiated by the Office of Naval Research, and for a considerable period was supported exclusively by them under contract N5ori60. It is now supported jointly by the Office of Naval Research and the United States Air Force. The results that have so far been achieved represent the combined efforts of many; the following have played leading parts in the development of the computer: H. R. Boyd, S. H. Dodd, R. R. Everett, H. Fahnestock, N. H. Taylor, C. R. Wieser, P. Youtz. This booklet was prepared by R. R. Rathbone.
