Adele Katz Goldstine

Adele Katz was born in New York City in 1920. She attended Hunter College and received her masters at the University of Michigan, becoming a mathematician. She married Herman Heine Goldstine – who was involved in the early development of computers – in 1941.

At the Moore School of Electrical Engineering in Philadelphia, a group known as the ENIAC girls was programming the first general-purpose electronic computer, which Katz Goldstine joined in 1942. She was the first programmer for ENIAC, as well as writing its documentation and operating manual.

Katz Goldstine died in 1964.
