Introduction to the Collection

The papers of Thomas E. Kurtz contain correspondence, project notes, memos, newsletters, software, hardware and procedure manuals, academic papers, curricula, presentation notes, programming calculations, textbooks, IBM punched cards, punched tape with various programs as well as journals and periodicals. The material chronicles Kurtz's development, with John G. Kemeny, of the first user-friendly computer language BASIC and subsequently the Dartmouth Time Sharing System (DTSS), the first successful large-scale computer sharing system. Lecture notes, transparencies, assignments and exams related to his teaching of BASIC and computer science at Dartmouth College are also included. In order to facilitate the teaching of computer science both Kemeny and Kurtz were instrumental in establishing the Kiewit Computation Center at Dartmouth and material related to its evolution can also be found here.

Biography

Thomas Eugene Kurtz was born February 22, 1928. He graduated from Knox College in 1950, and received his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1956. He joined the faculty at Dartmouth College as professor of mathematics the same year. In 1963, he co-designed with G. Kemeny the first computer language known as BASIC (Beginners All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) for Dartmouth’s experimental time-sharing system (DTSS). From 1966-1975, he served as Director of Kiewit Computation Center at Dartmouth and from 1975-1978 ,he was the Director of Academic Computing. In 1980,he became the Director of Computer and Information Systems program at Dartmouth, a groundbreaking multidisciplinary graduate program. He held this position until 1988, after which he returned to teaching full-time as a professor of mathematics with an emphasis on statistics and computer science. He also served as the Council Chairman and Trustee to EDUCOM and NERComP, as well as on the Pierce Panel of the Presidents’ Scientific Advisory Committee. In 1991, he received the Computer Pioneer Award and in 1994, was inducted as a Fellow of the Association of Computing Machinery.
