Description

This series contains a timeline of 300+ major computers built between 1942 and 1996 that were represented in the TCM collection in some fashion. This may have been a computer or a part of a computer in the permanent collection, a computer or a part of a computer on loan from another institution, a lecture or presentation by the machine’s creator(s), or other related material such as a photograph or document. How the computer was represented in the collection is not noted in the timeline. The timeline is not an official TCM record, but rather was built by Bell in 2015 as a useful reference.
