Q32 lisp, written by R Saunders around 63-64 made heavy use of
macros. However, it was a compiler-only LISP and it was thought
at the time that macros were something that had to do only with
compilation. I think an early version of PDP6 Maclisp was the
first to have macros as part of EVAL.
Another early system which I think had macros was m-416 lisp
written by Tim Hart.
A collection of lisp papers published by III and edited by
Edmund C Berkley had quite a bit of info on the lisps of the
day, including a complete listing of the Q32 lisp compiler.
