Made by Les Earnest around 1970 for use at the Stanford AI Lab. It was used with all terminals except teletypes: III displays, Imlacs, and Data Disc displays.
- Personal communication from Bruce Baumgart:
Same keyboards at all stations AFTER 1970 ( except dial-in, teletypes and CTY console TTY ).
- Personal communication from Les Earnest:
I invented both the Meta and Top keys while designing the SAIL keyboard. I also rearranged the numeric keys, starting with 0 on the lef and going up to 9
- Personal communication from Tom Knight:
The keyboard was definitely inspired by the Earnest Stanford keyboard.
