I've poked around online for a while, but couldn't find it. I want to see the first human-readable Roman character set designed for entry on a computer screen.
Specifically, I'm looking for the first that was displayed on a monitor in response to letters typed on a keyboard, with a computer somewhere in the middle there. The closest I've been able to figure is that it might have been on a terminal hooked up to a MULTICS system.
