Noticed this in the NYT and thought that I've never heard of this guy, but he is mentioned in "Eniac: The Triumphs and Tragedies of the World's First Computer" by Scott McCartney.

The NYT article is "Harry Huskey, Pioneering Computer Scientist, Is Dead at 101" 
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/20/us/harry-huskey-dead-computer-pioneer.html

His G-15 computer was 'personal' because it could be operated by one person.
