I received additional information. Apparently some kind of home brew
assembler at Dartmouth College.
"I would not be surprised if the assembler source is a little
different from DEC standard PDP-9 sources.
We had a tendency back in the day to write our own assemblers on the
"big" mainframe time-sharing system that had decent editors and disk
storage. We'd assemble, print out listings on 1200 lpm printers and
then when we were done, punch the binaries out on paper tape on a
teletype. If we were lucky, we had some sort of RS-232
communications to the PDP-9 (or whatever mini) and you could deal
with it that way. We supported many different smaller machines from
the mainframe (GE-635) over the years."
