I don't know why it hasn't occurred to me before now, but I bet I
can find the text used in my first (and only) computer science
course, which I took in Fall 1977 at The University of North Carolina
(Chapel Hill).

After some image searching, I'm pretty sure this was our text:

"An Introduction to Programming: A Structured Approach Using
PL/1 and PL/C" by Richard Walter Conway (1973)
http://www.amazon.com/dp/0876264054

This is the course that I was talking about a 31 July 2009
math-teach post (URL below). That July 2009 post is mostly
a re-posting of a 25 February 2008 AP-calculus post with some
corrections (comments between square brackets) that I made
when I reposted it to math-teach.
