I actually recall him having done much of the work at CMU but can’t be sure.  I also seem to recall him finish up the paper.  I was lucky in my office mates: I had John Lions and tjk.  Some place, I have a few pics of USG’s computer room.  I only recall RP04s however.  :(

I do believe that he told them (rightfully) that it was primarily developed at CMU using CMU computing resources (the 11/34A for the Digital Lab in the EE Dept that Ted and I ran).  IIRC: the primary feature hat he did to it at Summit besides support for the changes in the V7 filesystems, was support for large disks (aka RP06) when attached to a small address space (11/40 class) systems, of which CMU had a number as I believe the Labs did also.   Armando's I believe you two were office mates in those days, do you have memory?
