Well, circa 1986:

Symbolics Lisp machines, in particular Genera/CLIM
http://kogs-www.informatik.uni-hamburg.de/~moeller/symbolics-info/symbolics.html

CLIM: Common Lisp Interface Manager
http://kogs-www.informatik.uni-hamburg.de/~moeller/uims-clim/clim-intro.html

CLIM is still around today.

In the interest of avoiding a technical debate on the topic, which
will have little to no bearing on some of the issues critiques of
Generation Flash have raised, I suggest that the issue of Flash's
status as a language, be put aside for now.
