This is the 65th straight Penn Relays for official Arthur Havsy, his 45th in a row as an official. Arthur and his son Jeff oversee the field events results, which are computerized. Of course, when Arthur’s stretch of 65 in a row began, the computer did not yet exist.
The first computer was built in 1946, just steps away from Franklin Field at the University of Pennsylvania’s Moore School of Electrical Engineering. That first computer was called the ENIAC, which stood for ‘Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer.’
Congrats to Arthur… and the ENIAC.
