I think Bill Mauchly would certainly be an excellent
choice for a speaker. I know at least one of Bill's
sisters is also nearby. Eckert's son Chris lives in
GA, I believe, but I don't know if he'd be interested
in giving a presentation. As for others, two of the
authors of "ENIAC in Action," Tom Haigh and Mark
Priestley do give talks on ENIAC, but I know that
recently their work has been focused on other things.

I was unaware of that anniversary, but it is most welcome! In fact, I may ask Mauchly’s son to do a talk. Any other speakers that you recommend?
