During some of that period I ran some of the computers (PDP-11/45,
PDP-11/79s) that were used by SDC's continuous speech recognition
program. I remember Iris Kameny (sp) and Billy Breckenridge and one
other person who had the most gawd-awful cigar-stunk sofa in his office.
He did a lot of the stuff with "Crisp" on one of our 360 or 370
Billy Breckenridge and I took over the soundproof room (designed by Lee
Moho who I believe did a lot of work with our ACC "Santa Barbara Box",
an IMP-IBM channel interface) as our out-of-sight (and sound) office
(because we could control the thermostat and play our music really loud.)
Our system was used as a prop in some silly movie with Peter Graves
searching for Yeti.
