Oh yes--look up "Telequote".  I think that CHM has a few bits as well.

A lot of caselaw was tied up in Telequote, but by the early 70s, nearly 
every stockbroker had a TQ terminal on his desk.   BR was one of the 
first companies I bought stock in--the future was very clear to me at 
the time.

I think most of the server gear for Telequote was IBM S/360 stuff, but 
I'm not certain my memory is accurate.

Having a Telequote terminal would be akin to having a SABRE airline 
reservation terminal from the 60s.
