Dear SIGCIS colleagues:

I am hoping that your collective wisdom might help me check out a claim.  The British cybernetician Stafford Beer claims that the Ferranti Pegasus 1 machine he bought in 1956 was the only computer at that time dedicated entirely to applications in management science.  Do you know of any other examples of computers fully dedicated to management science applications during this time period?

Many thanks,
Eden Medina
