Abstract

This work includes references at events, people, and trends in computing in the three Baltic States: Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia during their Soviet period. The Soviet computing science and practice could be divided into league A and league B. The first was for defense industry and power structures, the second for wide public. Although the Baltic computing belonged in essence to the league B, its scientific results were on the level with the league A.
