In addition, the plaintiff's exhibits include material that demonstrated the state of computer research undertaken by others in the 1930s and 1940s. The efforts of Vannevar Bush and Samuel H. Caldwell at MIT, Vladimir Zworykin and Jan Alesander Rajchman at RCA, and Joseph R. Desch and Robert E. Mumma at National Cash Register Company are documented here. Their most significant records relate to the research of John Vincent Atanasoff and Clifford E. Berry at Iowa State College and the degree of contact and exchange between Mauchly and Atanasoff. Honeywell also submitted copies of the testimony and depositions of a number of the key figures in the development of the ENIAC and early computers.
The Defendants' trial exhibits series contain a complete copy of the United States Patent Office file for the ENIAC patent as well as a heavy concentration of secondary source material, in the form of copies of patents and articles from scientific and technical journals. All contents of this series generally falls within the date span of 1930 to 1965. The series does include correspondence, drawings, research notes, and reports; however, a large portion of the series contains published material such as journal and magazine articles, patents, technical reports and computer manuals. There is much more material in this series that relates to the internal organization, development and research of the Eckert Mauchly Computer Company. There is a large collection of original design drawings for the ENIAC.
