The 1979 ACM 7bring Award was presented to Kenneth E. Iverson by Walter Carlson, Chairman of the Awards Committee, at the ACM Annual Conference in Detroit, Michigan, October 29, 1979. in making its selection, the General Technical Achievement Award Committee cited Iverson for his pioneering effort in programming languages and mathematical notation resulting in what the computing field now knows as APL. Iverson's contributions to the implementation of interactive systems, to the educational uses of APL, and to programming language theory and practice were also noted. Born and raised in Canada, Iverson received his doctorate in 1954 from Harvard University. There he served as Assistant Professor of Applied Mathematics from 1955 to 1960. He then joined International Business Machines Corp. and in 1970 was named an IBM Fellow in honor of his contribution to the development of APL. Dr. Iverson is presently with I.P. Sharp Associates in Toronto. He has published numerous articles on programming languages and has written four books about programming and mathematics: A P r o g r a m m i n g Language [1962), Elementary Functions (1966], Algebra: An Algorithmic Treatment (1972), and Elementary Analysis (1976).
