DECUS symbol and PDP-1
8 x 10 in.
This is a black and white image of the DECUS symbol on the left side of the image and text with diagram on the right side of the image against a white background. The text reads "Archeological Find In rescuing some ancient manuscripts from the trash, I was reminded of having heard that the DECUS symbol is based on a front view of the old 'TYPE 30' pointscope. (Note the object labeled A7 on the diagram.) There are pages....the general public would ever see such an expensive toy, much less own one. Little did we know. Sincerely, James A. Mahaffey, Ph.D.". There is a small diagram showing the Type 30 pointscope on top of a table. There are callouts with ID labels in the balloons pointing to different sections of the table.
