Bottom: Eckert at his Watson Lab Star Measuring and Recording Machine, with Rebecca Jones. Left Foreground: Eckert books and papers. Left Background: "A Sample Experience in Programming a Computer", apparently a hands-on demonstration involving an IBM Selectric-type terminal (far left) and a small IBM computer (whose console is partially hidden by the column; I don't recognize the model).
