The Beehive terminal I used around 1975 used an 8008 and a bunch of
MOS shift registers for memory. No conventional SRAM/DRAM at all. I
recall the parts were small 8-pin DIPs.
My 1969 Moto Microelectronics databook shows only a handful of MOS
MC1124L - Quad T flip-flop
MC1141G - Triple 66-bit dynamic shift register
MC1150L - 8 channel MUX switch
MC1151L - 2-of-8 channel MUX switch
So it's doubtful that MOS shift registers would meet the 1965
criterion at all.
