Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Marlyn Meltzer was one of the original programmers for the ENIAC computer. She was born Marlyn Wescoff and graduated from Temple University in 1942. She was hired by the Moore School of Engineering later that year to perform weather calculations, mainly because she knew how to operate an adding machine; in 1943, she was hired to perform calculations for ballistics trajectories. In 1945, she was selected to become one of the first group of ENIAC programmers. Although mentioned in Woman of the ENIAC, at the time, little recognition was attributed to woman working on the computer. She resigned from the team in 1947 to get married before ENIAC was relocated to the Aberdeen Proving Grounds. In 1997 she was inducted into the Women in Technology International Hall of Fame, along with the other original ENIAC programmers
