Organick and Cleary's article on the Burroughs B6700 includes -- procedure calls and returns; hardware interrupts; small working sets; sharing programs and data; references; appendix - some details of the B6700 Hardware; more ['The coupling of the B6700 hardware and the data structures characteristic of the computation on which it, the B6700, must operate is described from two points of view. The body of hte paper gives a conceptual (contour) model view and introduces hardware concepts of the B6700 with a minimum of detail; the supporting appendix, on the other had, offers a thorough exposure to the hardware details, which are brought into focus via a global view of the B6700 operating system...' from the Abstract]
Kurt Walk's paper on Higher Level languages deals in part with ALGOL 60, ALGOL 68 and PL/I, a LISP-like system, and more.
