Creator of the first word processor dies

Computing pioneer Evelyn Berezin died at 93 this week. She was most known as the designer of the first true word-processing computer. But she designed many other innovative computing systems and helmed Redactron Corporation, a company that helped transform offices by producing and distributing her word-processor device.

Although Visicalc gets a lot of credit for increasing the production of office workers, the word processor was more important.
