Work experienceI learned programming working for the summer of 1960 at Bell Telephone Laboratories, Whippany, NJ, on a vacuum-tube computer, an IBM 704. (I wrote a set of subroutines, in assembler language, Matrix Operations Modulo P -- MOPMOP). After five years as a programmer with Western Electric Corporation, Burlington, NC, I came to UNC-CH where I remained until retirement (1967-1999). When I started working for Western Electric, the computer I used was the same IBM 704 it had been shipped to Bell Labs in Winston Salem my punched cards rode in a truck back and forth to Winston Salem.
Work experience at UNCI provided computer support services at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 1967-1999. My work, over those years, included supervision of the Help Desk, training, documentation, and program development. When I retired (March 1, 1999), I was Campus Webmaster and a Tier 2 Analyst in the IT Response Center (Help Desk). I started developing the Info service at UNC-CH in 1987 and was an active participant in the CWIS-L list (
