This is Tom Sawyer again, noting a new page added to my Burroughs 205 history website. There are many interesting people and personalities associated with the Datatron and one that has long interested me is Gloria Bullock. Gloria shows up early in the organization - even before there was an ElectroData. She is found in the Mathematics section of the fledgling organization, but there are references to her being involved with training too.
When I came across a 1959 Los Angeles Times story noting an Urban League award presented to Bullock by baseball star Roy Campenella, I knew this was someone I wanted to learn more about. I was a big "Campy" fan. The California Eagle characterized the award as being "for her part in perfecting computing machinery."
Last summer, I finally came across an internal Burroughs publication from 1957 that designated Bullock as the first Datatron programmer. With the recent publicity surrounding the movie, "Hidden Figures," I thought it might be time to put together Gloria Bullock's chapter in the Datatron story. (The book is much better than the movie, in my opinion.) The result is this page on the 205 history website.
My one regret is that I have not been able to close out the story beyond about 1977 when Gloria was living in Palo Alto near her younger sister in Moss Beach. Perhaps, as is sometimes the case, a mention on the Internet might turn up someone who knows the answer.
