Brian Randell spent 1964-1966 first at IBM Research working on Project Y and then in the IBM Systems Development Division with the resulting ACS Project-then-secret projects that aimed to build a supercomputer that would be 100 times faster than Stretch. His account of these projects here makes use of a small set of files mainly relating to patent applications.
