Part of the series: Interviews

HPR Correspondents bring you Interviews from interesting people and projects

While my parents are visiting from Tennessee I take advantage of the opportunity to talk to my dad for awhile about his early days of computing. He has a PhD in statistics and has been using computers since the 1960s. We talk about his programming in Fortran and Cobol, about building Heathkit projects, about his duties as a VP for Information Technology at a small private university in Nashville, and about his more recent programming in Windows.
