John Atanasoff & Clifford Berry
Dr. John V. Atanasoff and his assistant Clifford Berry built the first electronic digital computer. It was called the Atanasoff-Berry-Computer (ABC)
The Atanasoff-Berry Computer (ABC) was designed and built between 1937 and 194 by John Atanasoff and Clifford Berry at the University of Iowa. It is recognized as the first automatic electronic digital computer.

Between 1939-1942 by professor John Atanasoff and Clifford Berry.
John Vincent Atanasoff, with Clifford Berry building it. After WW2 Atanasoff got bad advice from University Patent Attorney and did not file for patent(s).
Professor John Atanasoff and graduate student Clifford Berry built the world's first electronic-digital computer at Iowa State University between 1939 and 1942.
John Atanasoff and Clifford Berry invented the first electronic-digital computer at Iowa State University between 1939 and 1942. The Atanasoff-Berry Computer (ABC) represented several innovations in computing, including a binary system of arithmetic, parallel processing, regenerative memory, and a separation of memory and computing functions.
Atanasoff (1903-1995) and his graduate assistant, Clifford Berry (1918-1963), designed the first electronic digital special-purpose computer in the 1930s. The Atanasoff-Berry Computer used vacuum tubes for storage
In 1942 the ABC, built by John Vincent Atanasoff and Clifford Berry solved systems of simultaneous equations for the Statistics Dept. at the University of Iowa in Ames Iowa.
John Atanasoff and Clifford Berry built the first digital electronic computer between 1939 and 1942 at Iowa State University. It was a revolutionary development that paved the way for digitizing information.
Dr. John Vincent Atanasoff.
John Vincent Atanasoff was 34 years old when he invented the ABC in an Illinois bar in the winter of 1937-38. Clifford Edward Berry did not become involved until 1939, he was a graduate student "hired" by Atanasoff to help with final circuit design and assembly.
Each drum of the Atanasoff-Berry Computer contained 1600 capacitors. There were 2 drums.
John Vincent Atanasoff was a Bulgarian inventor who lived in the early to mid 1900's. He went to school at the University of Florida as well as many others, and taught Physics and other sciences at the Iowa State University from 1930-1945. With Clifford Berry he built the world's first digital computer.
It was used for a brief time by the statistics department of the university. Atanasoff & Berry were called off to war work elsewhere and abandoned the machine. The university needed more classroom space during the war and finding ABC too large to fit through the door (by an inch or two) cut the machine up and scrapped most of it.
