Computing Machine Laboratory
Max Newman established the Royal Society Computing Machine Laboratory at Manchester University, shortly after the end of World War II, around 1946. The Laboratory was funded through a grant from the Royal Society which was approved in the summer of 1946. He recruited the engineers Frederic Calland Williams and Thomas Kilburn where they built the world's first electronic stored-program digital computer, which came to be known as the Manchester Baby, based on Alan Turing's ideas. Their prototype ran its first program on 21 June 1948.
