Description
A bundle of the works of John B. Smith corresponding to the period of 1966-1970, provided by John B. Smith from his personal collection. In this period, Smith was a Ph.D. student at the University of Virginia at Chapel Hill. Over the course of this degree, Smith was introduced to programming via a course on PL/1 programming for humanists with an emphasis on natural language processing, and developed a passion for that stream of research. The documents included in this bundle emerged from that early interest, and reflect a combination of Smith's work as research assistant to Sally Sedelow and his dissertation, Imagery and the Mind of Stephen Dedalus. Starting the summer of 1968, Smith worked as a research assistant for Sally Sedelow on her Automated Language Analysis research project while taking computer science and psychometric courses, and learning about the statistical analysis and modeling tools that gave him the tools to develop the programs and strategies used in his dissertation. The files provided here are a combination of PDFs scanned from original texts, .tif and .jpg versions of the relevant figures and illustrations, and an .html index file for the dissertation. All originals are held by John B. Smith.
