Today in Computer History


...1996
Seymour Cray, the father of the supercomputer, died today due to injuries from a car accident. He founded Cray Research in 1972 and created the first supercomputer, the Cray-1, in 1976 followed by the Cray-2, and 3. His computers were used primarily for scientific research and computer graphics. Cray's Alma Mater is the University of Minnesota where he attained a B.Sc in Electrical Engineer and a M.Sc in Applied Mathematics.
