The Univac 1 is the first commercial computer to attract widespread public attention. Although manufactured by Remington Rand, the machine was often mistakenly referred to as the IBM Univac.” Univac computers were used in many different applications but utilities, insurance companies and the US military were major customers. One biblical scholar even used a Univac 1 to compile a concordance to the King James version of the Bible. Created by Presper Eckert and John Mauchly – designers of the earlier ENIAC computer – the Univac 1 used 5,200 vacuum tubes and weighed 29,000 pounds.
