The Concept of HyperText is Conceived

Vannevar Bush was an electrical engineer at MIT and an influential science adviser to President Roosevelt and the federal government during and after World War II. Bush was the originator of the concept of hypertext. In 1945, Bush proposed MEMEX, a conceptual machine that could store vast amounts of information. Users had the ability to create information trails, links of related texts and illustrations, which could be stored and used for future reference.
