John Vincent Atanasoff was born in 1903 in New York and went on to become one of the fathers of electronic digital computing. This delightful digital collection brings together a set of primary and secondary materials related to his career, courtesy of Iowa State University. During his long career he filed patents for a method for cutting fusible fabrics, an electronic chassis, and a method and apparatus for sweeping underwater mines. On this site, visitors can look through six different areas documenting his work, including Computing History and John V. Atanasoff which includes a nice biography on the inventor. The Atanasoff-Berry Computer area should not be missed as it tells the story of how this massive machine was designed to solve large systems of linear algebraic equations. The area dedicated to ABC Reconstruction is another gem as it tells the story of how a team of researchers recreated this famous computer in the mid-1990s.
