Richard V. Andree, U Oklahoma
Early interpreted algebraic language for Bendix G15,
According to common web-sources, said to have preceded and influenced development of BASIC. This highly unlikely as the genesis of BASIC is about 6 years earlier than the evidence would suggest.
Online ref: Dale Peters reports that in the summer of 1966 he attended the second year of an NSF-sponsored summer institute in mathematics and computing at the University of Oklahoma. Richard Andree taught the computing class which mostly used the language GO-GO which was later renamed ALPS. Andree, Harold Wiebe, Ralph Howenstein, and another grad student were changing the language frequently during the class, which was occasionally a little disorienting. Dale believes it was used in the previous summer as well and that it was about this time that Kemeny (one of the designers of BASIC) saw it during a visit.
