for Norwegian University Algol

"In 1965 the Technical Institute at Trondheim, Norway obtained its own 1107 at a discount and began working on a new ALGOL compiler. It was adopted by UNIVAC which named it Norwegian University ALGOL (NU ALGOL).    
NU ALGOL found modest use within the UNIVAC 1100 customer base. The University of Wisconsin, which was making the transition from a Burroughs B5500 to a UNIVAC 1108, developed various extensions to NU ALGOL including the capability of handling ASCII characters in place of the 1108s native Fieldata character set. Wisconsin wrote an e-mail system using NU ALGOL."
