Univac 422 in The Patty Duke Show - Season 1, Episode 2, "The Genius" (1963)

The 422 is renamed as the Technical Electronic Amplifier Code Handler, or TEACH, and used to calculate the IQ of the school's students.

Importance: *****
Realism: ***
The use of a 422 in a school is spot on, and the machine is of the right vintage (if anything, it may have been a pre-release demonstration machine), but the IQ test involves the machine interpreting English language responses from the children.

Visibility: ****

Great Segment of an early computer! Trying to tally how many UNIVAC 422s are left? Thanks Ed Sharpe - Archivist for SMECC
