Sorry for the bandwidth.. couldn't resist..
7th floor of Bascom?  I guess that's where the *real* lofty
thoughts took place.  I'll bet the way a person got to 712 Bascom Hall
was to go to the basement and find the room with the most aromatic
smoke coming out of it... I think the basement was where all the IBM 650s
were in the mid-60's and before Van Vleck was built.  Once MRC, Van Vleck,
Van Hise, and Dayton St were built, the math nerds didn't have to hide
out in Bascom.  I left in '72 so I guess things could have changed a lot.

I spent too much of my life in the E building down in the valley, but
never operated YT.  I operated WB9GOB (or whatever it was) in the
basement of Elm Drive B.
