Seymour Cray

Cray knew what he wanted and he knew how to get it. He was a master at architecture, aligning the possible with the desirable, and then coaxing an organization to produce it. I first touched his work programming the CDC 6500 at Purdue.

CERN was pleased to take delivery of their 6600 in 1965. An old film explaining its role in atomic research has been preserved. video
