Remembering Dr. John Ehrman:
The Father of IBM High Level Assembler

D

r. John Ehrman, known
for creating the IBM High
Level Assembler, died of
cancer in February at the age of
82. Ehrman was a pillar in the IBM
community, and his roots in the
Assembler language are
far reaching.
After completing his doctorate in
physics at the University of Illinois,
Ehrman was immediately hired at
the university's computer center
to manage the group running IBM
7090/94 computers. A few years
later, in 1966, he began working for
the computer center at the Stanford
Linear Accelerator Center, where he
taught Assembler language courses.
He never lost interest.
