The Paul Perkovic papers range in date from 1967 to 1988 and consist of documentation related to his studies at Harvard University as well as his early career. The papers include technical reports, memos, notes, and published manuals. About a third of the collection is made up of materials from between 1968 and 1974, including technical reports published by the Harvard University Center for Research in Computing Technology as well as notes and documentation related to programs that Perkovic worked on at Harvard. Another third of the papers consists of documentation related to the Chicago Tribune publishing systems, including materials on newspaper and advertisement layout systems as well as computer terminal management. This portion of the papers also includes internal memos, notes, and reports about Chicago Tribune publishing and computer use. Most of the remainder of the papers pertains to Perkovic’s work at Software House and CompuServe Data Technologies. Examples of materials include management and supervision handbooks, manuals for the CompuServe System 1032, and binders with status reports from 1983 to 1986 distributed by the Software House technical marketing group. Finally, the papers include a small amount of specifications and manuals from the early 1970s published by Xerox, Scientific Data Systems, Computer Sciences Corporation, and Digital Equipment Corporation.
