This is a very well known story about Kelly, which
is reported with some variations in different books.
The story goes back to hearsay and can hardly
be verified. 

I might as well indicate an area of my web
site that contains some reference texts related
to this, and to later VMS-related history.
Please do not put any hyperlinks to it, since
it is obviously not compliant to certain rights
that we all know.
