MIT Comp Center and University of Michigan had close ties in the early
  60s, and there was an informal group studying virtual memory in 1964
  that included MIT and U of M researchers. The paper "Program and
  Addressing Structure in a Time-Sharing Environment," by Arden, Galler,
  and Westervelt (CACM, January 1966), was based on these discussions and
  especially on work by MIT professors Jack Dennis and Earl Van Horn. MIT
  and U of M participated in discussions with IBM about a virtual memory
  machine.
