What the DEC?!? Records of Minicomputer Giant Digital Equipment Corporation Open for Research at CHM | Computer History Museum

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/06/14

The records represent the largest and most complete set of DEC records in existence, dating from 1947 through 2002, with the bulk from the company’s years of operation from 1957 through 1998, when they were bought by Compaq Computer. The collection is a comprehensive technical history of every major computing innovation at DEC, as well as its nontraditional business culture, which still serves as an industry model—nearly every contemporary company strives for a “culture of innovation.” The processing of the collection presents an extraordinary opportunity to study DEC’s product lines and business practices in depth as was never before possible. Very few companies as influential as DEC have as long a history, and the breadth and depth of this collection makes it unique in its comprehensiveness.

I could spend months in this archive (:

The PDP-11 and VAX-11/750 were the machines I first learned about DECNET, EARN and BITNET.
