Coffee and Conversation with Russ Gifford: The Human Computers
In the years before electronic calculators or desktop computers, complex math problems were solved by humans using pencils, paper, and brain cells. When the Space Age entered the mix, the numbers became even more important. Who were these human computers? What became of them? Join Russ Gifford for a look back at the driving forces in the days when details and decimals counted, and the results were from pencil and paper.

The 1960s were years of notable change in Sioux City where we saw the opening of Interstate 29, the completion of the Floyd River and Missouri River flood control projects, the first River-Cade celebration, and more.
