Why I collect all this stuff

I visited the Computer History Museum in Boston. It was behind the Children’s Museum. It had a wonderful collection of old computers such as the Sage Computer and several more.

I was interested in how they were going to display their microcomputers. They were stacked in a corner one on top of another.  Only the CPUs.  Around this was a table with new computers.  I was so irate.  I couldn't believe that a museum would display microcomputer this way.  I decided then and there to collect microcomputers.  My idea was to display them running with all their perpherials and software.  Reality has set in having tried to get funding.  So I can at least show off the collection using this website.

Since I worked for IBM for 30 years and in 1981 I was responsible for writing the DOS manual for the PC, you will find a lot of IBM PC stuff in the collection.  Also being the co-founder of the Palo Alto PET Users Group, I have alot of Commodore computers.

What you will find is lots and lots of photographs.  I like to photograph the computers from all angles.  For books, I scan the front, table of content, introduction and back.  Please feel free to copy the photographs.
