Fingers Crossed for 2021 ...

2020 was the worst! COVID kept the museum closed for much of the year and a mains water pipe bursting causing a flood kept us closed for the rest.

CMLEO/PB - Peter Bird Collection

Peter Bird (1934-2017), historian of Lyons and LEO, gathered a collection of documents, photographs and other material in preparation for his pioneering book LEO - The First Business Computer (1994). These then passed to the LEO Computers Society, and have been loaned to the Centre for Computing History for digitisation and cataloguing as part of the project 'Swiss Rolls, Tea and the Electronic Office'.

Find out more about Peter Bird on his biography page in LEOPEDIA.

His Lyons research papers have been donated to the London Metropolitan Archive (their ref ACC/3527).
