John Atanasoff was born October 4, 1903, in Hamilton, New York. With Clifford Berry, he developed the Atanasoff-Berry Computer, capable of solving differential equations using binary arithmetic. In 1952 he established the Ordnance Engineering Co. In 1973, after a judge voided a patent owned by Sperry Rand Corp., the Atanasoff-Berry Computer was credited as the first electronic digital computer.
