?Listening to PBS yesterday, there was an interveiew about the history of
FEMA, and they mentioned EMISARI as being the Ur of chat software. I had
heard of PLATO and EIES, but never EMISARI.

I googled and found 1) a related story in Wired -
https://www.wired.com/story/the-secret-history-of-fema/ and 2) this book
excerpt http://bit.ly/2fIe8Qw

Questions: Packet-based? Relied on a central server? Any further insights?

?It would seem Murray Turoff deserves wider recognition.
