I wrote two papers on this subject in ancient times:

``A Note on Universal Turing Machines,'' Automata Studies,
C.E. Shannon and J. McCarthy, editors, Annals of Mathematics Studies,
Princeton University Press, 1956.

``The Definition of Universal Turing Machine,'' Proceedings of the
American Mathematical Society, vol.8(1957), pp. 1125-1126.
