Description

The Herbert Stoyan collection on LISP programming contains materials documenting the origins, evolution, and use of the LISP programming language and many of its applications in artificial intelligence. Stoyan collected these materials during his career as a researcher and professor, beginning in the former German Democratic Republic (Deutsche Demokratische Republik) and moving to the Federal Republic of Germany (Bundesrepublik Deutschland) in 1981. Types of material collected by Stoyan include memoranda, manuals, technical reports, published and unpublished papers, source program listings, computer media (tapes and flexible diskettes), promotional material, and correspondence. The collection also includes manuscripts of several books written by Stoyan and a small quantity of his personal papers.
