Title

Grace Hopper as a Prophet of High-Level Programming Languages

Description

Grace Hopper (1906-1992) programmed Harvard's Mark I computer (1944-1949) and helped develop the UNIVAC (1949-1966), for which she wrote the world's first compiler in 1952. Her ideas of higher-level programming inspired COBOL. She directed the Navy Programming Languages Group (1967-1977), eventually retiring as Rear admiral.
