Proton Scattering studies at 70-140 MeV: the first known word processed thesis.
This book is a 1967 DPhil Thesis at the University of Oxford plus historical commentary.
This scanned version was created from the authors’ copy, and the context surrounding it
documented. No hardcopy remained at the Bodelian Library at the University of Oxford
by 2010. A softcopy of the present book is available at http://www.mwigan.com.
It is the first known Thesis prepared using word processing (via paper tape) for the
entire document. The term “word processing” itself did not exist when this thesis was
produced. The word was invented by IBM in 1969 when they added magnetic cards to
their 1964 MG/ST Selectric electric Typewriter and then coined the term.
The details of the process and the events that led to the creation of this book are given in
Wigan, M. (2011). Proton Scattering studies at 70-140 MeV: the first known word processed thesis. Oxford Systematics
