    A brief history of CDC WONDER:

    • CDC WONDER began on the CDC mainframe in the late 1980’s, under the guidance of Howard Ory, Andrew Friede and Jerry Sanders. The system provided menu-driven, immediate ad-hoc data analysis to CDC scientists.

    • CDC WONDER/PC was issued in 1990 (official release in 1992) to EIS officers , state epidemiologists and other external partners. The system provided data analysis and communications with modem dial-up to a toll-free # or local area network connection. Secure email and bulletin boards were available, as well as surveillance data uploads. Design guidance was provided by Howard Ory, Andrew Friede and Joseph Reid.

    • WONDER.CDC.GOV was launched on the web in 1995.
