MACLISP is a dialect of the LISP Programming Language that ran on DEC PDP10 and Honeywell Multics in the 1970’s and early 1980’s.

MACLISP had a heavy influence on the design of Zetalisp (Lisp Machine Lisp) and Common Lisp.

The name “MACLISP” is from MIT’s Project MAC, later renamed to the “Laboratory for Computer Science” (LCS). Project MAC long pre-dates and has no relation whatsoever to the Apple Macintosh.
