(Assoziiert)

Thomas Haigh, PhD, is an Associate Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Comenius Visiting Professor of the History of Computing at Siegen University. He has published on many aspects of the history of computing including the evolution of data base management systems, word processing, the software package, corporate computer departments, Internet software, computing in science fiction, the “software crisis” of the 1960s, IBM in Europe, and the Colossus code breaking machines. Besides being the author of ENIAC in Action (MIT, 2016) Haigh is the editor of Histories of Computing (Harvard, 2011), a collection of the work of Michael Mahoney, and the lead editor of a 2015 special issue of Information and Culture on the theme “Histories of the Internet.” From 2005 to 2015 he was chair of SIGCIS, the group for historians of information technology. Currently he is collaborating with Paul Ceruzzi on a new edition of the book A History of Modern Computing. Learn more at www.tomandmaria.com/tom.

Published Oral History Transcripts

I’m including in this category my thirty-eight professionally transcribed oral histories placed in archival repositories with on-line full text access. I have conducted these interviews on behalf of oral history programs sponsored by the Software History Center, Association for Computing Machinery, Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, and Computer History Museum. SIAM, the sponsoring organization for the great bulk of them, published them online and has made a donation of the transcripts and original recordings to the Computer History Museum to ensure that they are archived and made available.

Interviews review the subject’s entire career. The median interview is around five hours and 40,000 words. The longest, with ACM Turing Award Winner William Kahan, was more than twenty hours and 158,000 words.
