 for MacLisp
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  MacLisp
  
      A dialect of Lisp developed at MIT AI Lab in
     1966, known for its efficiency and programming facilities.
     MacLisp was later used by Project MAC, Mathlab and
     Macsyma.  It ran on the PDP-10.  It introduced the LEXPR
     (a function with variable arity), macros, arrays, and
     CATCH/THROW.
  
     MacLisp was one of two main branches of LISP (the other being
     Interlisp).  In 1981 Common LISP was begun in an effort to
     combine the best features of both.
