I was suprised to learn of the recent passing of Geoff
Tootill who worked on the Manchester Baby.  I had
guessed that at age 101, Harry Husky was the last
living alum of the first generation projects when he
passed away earlier this year.  This raises the question
of whether Tootill was the last one.  To put a finer point
on the question, is anyone who was involved with the
original designs of the ENIAC, the Baby, the EDSAC,
the Pilot ACE, the Z1, or the Harvard Mark I still with
us?
