    In looking for early records of the past I found very few pictures and videos, but posted what I had. (We mostly had taken screen images.) The earliest pictures I have are from 1969. I did find a few from the early 1970s. Here are Marvin and Seymour in 1971. {headshot.jpg} headshot.jpg
    This wiki is an experiment in collecting and presenting material on Logo.
    I apologize for the redundancy.
    My View of Logo, Papert and Constructionist Learning-Logo, the LanguageLogo, the Language
    The first running version of Logo was in 1967 and it was a place where kids could play with words and sentences -- explore mathematics, write stories, make games,
    The Logo language went through several iterations; four or five . By 1972 the MIT Logo environment running on a DEC PDP-11 with special turtle graphics stations which we showed at a math education conference in Exeter, England. It was the summer of 1972 and a group of us including Hal Abelson, Ron Lebel, Tom Knight, Margaret Minsky, and Erric Solomon went with the equipment four weeks before the conference. We set up Logo classes working with Exeter kids. Jeanne Bamberger and Seymour joined us a week before the conference. (Ron Lebel was the major hardware and software person. He chose to adapt Tom Knight's graphics stations for the MIT AI Lab to this dedicated Logo system. Of course, Hal Abelson was involved as were a number of us in the language specifications. Each new implementation gave the Logo Group a chance to review and revise the language.) I always thought it was especially helpful that during the first few years Logo was not widespread and thus could go through several transformations.
    In the 70s there were several new implementations which took into account new hardware capabilities. These included General Turtle's Logo for stand alone workstations, Logo for the Apple II, TI-Logo, and so on. Logo for the Texas Instruments 99/4 took advantage of the sprite board. Now, you not only had color (introduced by the Apple version) you had more than one turtle.
