Description

This collection consists of PDF copies of documents produced by Honeywell during the trial of Honeywell vs. Sperry Rand, also known as the ENIAC trial. These documents were created on microfiche during the trial in 1971-1972 and later digitized to PDF in 2017. They exist in the Museum's collection in PDF form only.

The largest single document in the collection is the trial transcript (97 fiche). Also included is Honeywell's Plaintiff's Brief (24 fiche), along with author and keyword indexes and lists of exhibits (70 fiche).

Access note: Owing largely to the poor image quality of some frames in the original fiche, some pages are difficult to read or are illegible. For access to this collection, please submit a research request to research@computerhistory.org
