     i'm working on a piece here at the Washington Post about the Year
2000 bug, and
     although there is plenty of info about what it is and how to combat
it, there is very little
     history available.

     specifically, i'm trying to find out 1) who were the co-authors of
the COBOL language
     along with Grace Murray Hopper, 2) who decided to use two digits for
the year
     instead of four, and 3) who discovered the Y2K problem?

     i'm not sure if you would have that kind of information available in
your archive, but
     any leads you can give me would be a great help.

     please reply to:

     thanks in advance,
     bob massey
