William Klein posted this on another board,
I have copied it here for those interested:

I have "cut-and-pasted" (and reformatted) the information from the '85 Standard and its amendments
with all the detail you might EVER WANT about the history of COBOL. To view this material, please see:

PDF version:

HTML version:

Anyone NOT interested in "COBOL trivia" will probably find this pretty boring.
However, it is a fairly definitive and comprehensive history.
If nothing else, it should be a useful reference - should you need one in the future.

Anuj,

i always 'preview' my posts,
especially when I am collecting links for manuals or images.

a couple of times I have not submitted, yet I thought I had,
as a result the post was not there later.
