Hello,

Which was the first C compiler written outside Bell Labs?

I have a candidate in mind.  Alan Snyder interned at Bell Labs in 1973.
Later at MIT, we wrote a C compiler for the PDP-10.  This would have
been 1974-1975.

I personally am not aware of another any earlier, so if you asked me that
is what I would have said.   I'd be curious if you discover an earlier one
and the story behind it.
