Description

The Edward Feustel collection on the Rice University Computer Project (formerly Rice Institute) contains material collected by Feustel while he was employed at Rice University and Prime Computer. The collection spans 1958 to 1989, with some undated material. The material from Rice University documents the Rice University Computer Project, which produced the R1 computer, in full operation from 1961 to 1971. The R1 material includes documentation for R1 hardware and software, source code listings, status reports, and technical papers. The collection also includes some design documents and source codes listings for the R2, which was a planned follow-on to the R1, but whose construction was never completed. Also included are Prime Computer manuals.
