And the successor to the IBM 7090 was the 7094:
    The IBM 7094 computer in the Columbia University Computer Center
    machine room some time between 1964 and 1968, operator John
    Szallasi at the console. The IBM 709x series are the 36-bit
    machines on which LISP was developed; its 18-bit halfwords were
    perfect for CARs and CDRs. This is the machine that inspired
    DEC's first 36-bit machine, the PDP-6, which was followed by the
    PDP-10 and DEC-20.

And the DEC PCP-10 <>
was, of course, possibly the most widely-used machine for early Lisp work.
