    My View of the History of Logo Especially 1967-1987
    {marvinalan.jpg} {19.jpg} {wally.png} {19.jpg}
    I started designing Logo, a language for learning, with Seymour Papert and Wally Feurzeig in 1966 at Bolt, Beranek and Newman, Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 1967 we had a working version of Logo implemented in Lisp running on a time-shared SDS 940. Before I collaborated with Wally and Seymour I worked for Marvin Minsky at the MIT AI Lab as his secretary. Seymour started his work with Marvin before the BBN collaboration and in the summer of 1969 I joined Papert and Marvin Minsky at the MIT AI Lab and the Logo Group was formed. Wally at BBN continued work with Logo.

    We all had a Lisp background so procedural thinking was a natural component. In fact we initially thought of it as Baby Lisp or Lisp without parens.
    Danny started implementing Logo in Lisp on BBN's SDS 940. He gave it over to me and I gave it to Dick.
    At Constructionism2012 Celia Hoyles and Gary Stager talk to Wally Feurzeig and me about the start of Logo.
    Here Seymour talks about Logo and Basic.
    Seymour articulates the goals for Logo the language.
