I employed bibliometric and historical methods to study the domain of the Scientific Computing group at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) for an extended period of fifty years, from 1958 to 2007.  I noted and confirmed the growing emergence of interdisciplinarity within the group.  I also identified a strong, consistent mathematics and physics orientation within it.
