Women’s History Month

Rear Admiral  (and Dr.) Grace Hopper (1906-1992) was one of the first programmers in the history of the computer. She was the inventor of the first compiler for a computer programming language and was hugely influential to the first programming languages, COBOL, because she was a big proponent of the belief that programming languages should be as easily understood as English. This view of programming persists today. If you’d like to learn more about Grace Hopper, check out our holdings, Grace Hopper: Admiral of the Cyber Sea and Grace Hopper and the Invention of the Information Age.


“No computer is ever going to ask a new, reasonable question. It takes trained people to do that.” – Grace Hopper
