Greetings
  The first version of Stata was released in January of 1985. Have you
ever wished to see what that reference manual looked like? Well, thanks
to the kind folks at StataCorp, they have scanned the reference manual
and kindly given us permission to post it on our web site so you can
take a visit to the past and see the original Stata 1.0 manual. It is
amazing to see the seeds of the current version of Stata that were
planted in that manual. You can see a picture of the original Stata 1.0
manual and view a scanned .pdf version of the documentation by visiting

I appreciate UCLA doing this, but unfortunately there has obviously been a terrible mistake here. If you go through the manual, you see it consistently refers to some program called STATA. What in the world is that???

Or, perhaps anyone who refers to STATA on this list is still using version 1.0? :)
