Did Bell Labs approach MIT or was it the other way around? Did participating in Project MAC come from researchers requesting management at Bell Labs/MIT or did management make the decision due to dealing with other managers in each of the two organizations? Did it grow out of an informal arrangement into a format one?

Interesting question. Corby's oral history from the
computer history museum sheds some light on this; it
seems that Ed David at Bell Labs was good friends with
Bob Fano at MIT and they decided to work together. See
