Moments in IU history

1958 IU computer lab

IU uses computers to speed research


In 1958, IU was the first university to combine magnetic tape reading machines with an IBM Tape 650 magnetic drum data-processing machine. The result was a dramatic increase in the speed of the Research Center’s equipment, which had already cut some computations from months to minutes. The Research Computing Center was in the basement of what is today (2015) Swain Hall West. Indiana University Archives.

Tamarack Hall at IU Northwest

IU campus opens in Gary


Tamarack Hall, also known as Gary Main by its first occupants, served as the one and only permanent building on the new Gary Glen Park campus for ten years. Upon opening in May 1959, Tamarack contained all campus facilities: classrooms, laboratories, bookstore, library, cafeteria, administrative and faculty offices, and a 600-seat theater.
