: I think it was a mixture of Ada and some language that starts with 'B'.

Again the chronology seems to be severly mixed up. I really don't
think Ada was near it's inception at that time. However the person Ada
was well before this.

Let me quote Harbison and Steele, C, a Reference Manual:
"Dennis Ritchie designed the C language at Bell Laboratories in about
1972, and its ancestry dates from ALGOL 60 (1960), through Cambridge's
CPL (1963), Martin Richards's BCPL (1967) and Ken Thompson's B
language (1970) at Bell Labs."
