MU Chem Professor George Phillips operating the department's DEC PDP-8 digital computer, b&w. George Phillips was MU professor of Chemistry from 1967 to 1973. This PDP-8 is one of the later models, so this image would be 1970-73. Later systems (the PDP-8/I and /L, the PDP-8/E, /F, and /M, and the PDP-8/A) returned to a faster, fully parallel implementation but use much less costly transistor-transistor logic (TTL) MSI logic. Most surviving PDP-8s are from this era.
