Stanley “Stan” Frankel (1919-1978) was an American physicist who later became a computer scientist.

A former Oppenheimer physics student at the University of California, Berkeley, Frankel’s work at Los Alamos led him to be interested in early computers. After the war he learned about the ENIAC computer and became one of the country’s foremost experts on computation during the 1950s and 60s.
