If anyone can put names to some of the unidentified faces in the Bartels' reception photo album (item #3 above), please send me e-mail (jeff.ogden@umich.edu) or enter a comment here.

Also, for any photos on this page if there are corrections because I've misidentified someone or spelled a name wrong, please pass that information along too.

Thanks, -Jeff

Jeff,

Thanks for sending this. I saw in your Comments on the Images page a question about Dave F and image #19 in album 2. Assuming you're not talking about the teletype (smile) then it looks like a PDP-8 but I'm not sure what was its function.

It's definitely a PDP-8 and there is a 360 channel interface panel below
it. But it almost looks like it's not mounted in the rack.

As to location, I'm trying to remember where those wall-mounted lockers
were. I'm wondering if this was on the SE corner of the first floor near the
loading dock. Perhaps this was when Dave was getting ready to move
the PDP-8 he had out of the building to take home.

Garance helped to identify two of the folks in album #2, photo #4: Bruce Cowan (SFU) and Herb Lee (RPI) on either side of Wilson (RPI). Still don't know why everyone seems so gloomy.

Still need some help to get the IBM model number of the disk drives in album #2, photo #13.

The disk drives in album #2, photo #13 are Telex drives. George Helffrich is pretty sure that they are 3330s.

While trying to identify the person in album #2, photo #7 (http://picasaweb.google.com/103267580193222253134/UMComputingCenter?feat=embedwebsite#5509185587486773538), George Helffrich noticed that there is a strong resemblance to Luis Ortega in a 1971 photo of Columbia University's IBM 360-91 (2nd photo at http://www.columbia.edu/acis/history/36091.html). The name Luis Ortega doesn't ring a bell with several Michigan staff who were around when the 360-67 was at NUBS. Does anyone can to venture an opinion? Who is this? Is this Luis Ortega?
