The John R. Ehrman collection documents Ehrman’s work in programming at IBM and Stanford University, and his membership with SHARE, an early user group for programmers of IBM mainframe computers. Material dates from 1956 to 2005, with the bulk from 1966 to 1995. Much of the collection’s focus is on programming, with an emphasis on FORTRAN and its related languages, and consists mainly of manuals, reference guides, books, technical reports, specifications, and program listings. Nearly half of the material is published by IBM. The rest of the collection is published by Stanford University’s Computer Science Department and SLAC, SHARE, and other universities, associations, and companies.
