I went over this morning and was checking out all the documentation. Turned
out the guy was a programmer for IBM and worked on the 1130 followed by
later stuff. There is a lot of software and operational documentation
including the 1130 and 360 with a few others interspersed. She will let me
know after a friend of hers takes a look at the IBM stuff and takes what he
wants. If anyone has any interest in this type of stuff, let me know. I
hate to see it dumped and I have no room or any real desire to have it.
As far as the Bouroughs stuff, there is a LOT of docs there to as he worked
for Bouroughs here in Santa Barbara as a programmer before they left town.
Docs include the B1000, B1700, and a few others I can't recall now.
Also there are probably 25 - 30 boxes of IBM cards with programs on them.
So far, I can't tell which machine they go to but a goodly number of them
appear (from comparing the dates of where he worked and the dates on the
cards) to be for one of the Bouroughs machines. There is at least one box
with "1620" on it. If there are docs and listings, they most likely either
have been recycled or soon will be as I don't have the time to try and
corolate listings with decks. All this stuff will most likely be dumped
unless someone says they want them. I don't remember the names on the
cards, but it seemed that a number of them appeared to be utility programs.
I looked for any boxes of unpunched cards, and didn't see any.
Finally, there are about 24+ binders full of manuals that say "Company
Confidential" on them. I do not know what to do with these things or how to
get a release on them. As of now, they will be recycled unless someone
wants them and finds out how to get a release from Bouroughs (which I guess
is Unisys now).
