Wishlisted by Matt Mayer

John G. Kemeny and Thomas E. Kurtz were the designers of the original BASIC language at Dartmouth College. They aimed to increase programming literacy amongst students but found that existing languages were hard for students to grasp. Kemeny later said "Our vision was that every student on campus should have access to a computer, and any faculty member should be able to use a computer in the classroom whenever appropriate."
