Abstract : This set of documents represents an attempt to bring together in one place sufficient material to enable the reader to obtain a reasonable overview of the major ideas and conceptions that gave rise to the macromodule development project at Washington University, and to report and record some of the details of the ensuing development effort and its results. Part 1 of the report deals with the development of Phase I macromodules, of which over 800 modules of 17 types have been constructed and made part of a working inventory that resides at Washington University. The volume contains two excerpted reprints that present the initial conception of macromodules and means for implementing them as seen in the early days of the project, and a third reprinted report that presents a summary and overview as of the autumn of 1972.
