UMES, predecessor to U. Michigan's MTS

Just ran across this document about the University of Michigan Executive System (warning, archive link might be slow to load).

The thing is a really good description, generally, of what computer OS’s actually do, but what was extra-interesting to me was that this was apparently a predecessor of the Michigan Terminal System (MTS), which I used in the 1980s at the University of British Columbia. The UMES is even mentioned in the MTS Wikipedia page.

Nice find! Also available to read (at least in part) on Google Books.
