As historians (see an example of our papers at https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/8268025 for more
details), we're interested in writing about computational chemistry modelization
and computational chemistry software.
The issue of portability to minisupercomputers in the eighties is attracting our
interest and we are looking for witnesses that could share their memories and
views about relationships between comp chem software developers and hardware
manufacturers, (such as Alliant, Ardent, Multiflow... among others).
We're even more interested if they're living on the east coast as we are
currently working until the end of July on archival material at the Science
History Institute in Phladelphia, before going back home to France.
