Wasn't there?  I realize that the 1410 was not code compatible with the 1401,
but the architectures are similar enough that I would expect them to have
similar compilers.  I know that the 1401 had a FORTRAN IV compiler, because
that was my first computer and first language, back in the spring of 1969.
