    He established the Thomas J. Watson Astronomical Computing Laboratory in the early s and strongly urged IBM to develop a scientific calculator. His book, Punched Card Methods in Scientific Computation (), influenced the development of the electronic computer. In , Eckert left Columbia to become the director of the Nautical Almanac.

      In he summarized his work in an influential book, Punched Card Methods in Scientific Computation. In it, he explained that punched-card machines "are all designed for computation where each operation is done on many cards before the next operation is begun."Brand: MIT Press. It was here that in he wrote Punched Card Methods in Scientific Computation, widely considered the first computer book. In the Second World War, Eckert served as the U.S. Naval Observatory's chief astronomer and director of its Nautical Almanac Office, where he turned IBM machines and the methods he perfected at Columbia to production of.

    The IBM Multiplying Punch was a unit record machine that could read two numbers from a punched card and punch their product in a blank field on the same card. The factors could be up to eight decimal digits long. The was introduced in and was the first IBM machine that could do multiplication. tion: "Punched Card Methods in Scientific Computation, by W. J.
