John Gustafson recently discovered a web-site which documents some widely unknown early (1956-60) Librascope history related to the LGP-30 computer (which he worked on when he first came to Librascope in 1955).

You'll also be amazed to read of the LGP-30's contribution to so many early programming languges.
