DEC archiving project at the Computer History Museum

The Computer History Museum (Mountain View CA) recently completed a large archiving project that consisted mostly of documents and photos donated to the museum by the Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC), which was headquartered in Boston and existed as a company from about 1950 through about 1998. DEC was one of the computer giants of its day, second only to IBM.
