Harvard Mark I

The Newly Refurbished Exhibit of IBM's ASCC (Harvard Mark I) Aims to Reveal the Footsteps of Pioneers

 

Over fifteen years have gone by since the Mark I made its debut in the Science Center. Tens of thousands of students, faculty, staff and visitors from all over the world have seen it in all its majesty. It remains one of the most recognizable objects on Harvard's campus. It even has its own Wikipedia page! Such fame was deserving of a make-over, one that reflects not only the machine itself but the great men and women who designed and operated it. Our new multimedia exhibit highlights the history and technical aspects of this largest instrument in the care of the CHSI.
