Selling the Computer - Computer Marketing Brochures in the Collection

The brochures selected here (just a fraction of the Museum’s holdings in this area) show some of the more important technologies, companies, and applications in computing from 1948 to 1988. This covers the period from mechanical and relay-based computers to those based on the microprocessor—a remarkable transition that occurred over only 25 years. We hope you enjoy browsing through these historical documents.
