Abstract:

The records of Sperry's Univac Division are an important source for the history of the American computer industry, from its beginnings into the 1970s.

One of the largest record units is a separate 181 linear foot archive of documents from the Honeywell-Sperry Rand suit, including discovery of documents, depositions and trial transcripts. Since the suit revolved around the question of who invented the electronic digital computer, the case record contains extensive documentation on the formative years of the computer industry.

There is a separate body of legal papers relating to patent infringement suits. The records generated by Technitrol v. Sperry Rand and Sperry Rand v. Control Data Corporation are of particular interest as they describe the history of Engineering Research Associates and some of the top secret research and development that ERA was doing for the Navy in the years immediately after World War II. The records of J. William v. Eckert, et al., describe National Cash Register's efforts to develop electronic computers during the 1930s and 40s.

Public and Community Relations Dept. records include newsclippings and press release files, as well as copies of promotional brochures. There is also a typescript copy of the unpublished Sperry Univac history book, which was written during the late 1970s.

Patent and licensing records include the files of patent attorney W.E. Cleaver and copies of domestic and foreign licensing agreements.

Personnel Department records include correspondence files, as well as records of contract negotiations, arbitration, grievance, and National Labor Relations Board proceedings.

The photographs are serviced by the Pictorial Collections Dept. They depict the development of the ENIAC, BINAC, and UNIVAC computers. There are also several photographs of the Atanasoff computer that were submitted as evidence during the Honeywell trial. The photographs of ENIAC are of particular interest, as they convey a sense of awe and mystery associated with the first digital computer. BINAC photos include overall views and close-ups of the various components.

There are a large number of photographs of the UNIVAC I, II, and III systems, including component views and an album of flow charts and diagrams describing how the system operated. Also included is a photo of Walter Cronkite using the UNIVAC I on CBS News during the 1952 election.

Other photographs in the archive include views of the LARC, the File Computer, the Scientific Computers (1103, 1105 and 1107), early solid state computers, and the specialized systems manufactured for the Navy and the Air Force. There are also about 500 photographs documenting the evolution of Remington Rand's typewriters from 1876 through the mid-1950s.
