Dartmouth College. Computing Services
The Dartmouth Computing Services began in 1940 with a teletype console in McNutt Hall where George Stibiz demonstrated the first remote access to a digital computer using standard phone lines. For the next 40 years, Dartmouth computing was in the forefront of comupter development, installing the first computer in 1959 and in the early 1960s, developing a Time Sharing System, the first in the country and a computer language, BASIC to run it. In the forefront of these developments were mathematician and later Dartmouth College president John Kemeny and mathematician Thomas Kurtz.
