On May 31, 1943, a military commission on a new type of computer began; John Mauchly was the chief consultant and John Presper Eckert was the chief engineer. This began the computing careers of two inventors that helped to change the world of computing forever.
The Computers of John Presper Eckert & John Mauchly
In August 1944, John Mauchly and J Presper Eckert proposed the building of a new machine called the electronic discrete variable automatic computer or EDVAC. The EDVAC was the first internally stored program computer to be built, a major improvement over the ENIAC.
