25th November 1966: American engineers John Mauchly (1907 – 1980, left) and Dr Presper Eckert Jr (1919 – 1995) look at a portion of ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer), which they co-designed in 1946. Mauchly and Eckert are at the Fall Joint Computer Conference in San Francisco, California, where they are to be honored for their contributions to automatic computing. ENIAC was hailed as the world’s first all-electronic computer. It was later revealed, however, that the first had been the British wartime code-breaking machine, ‘Colossus’.
