CMLEO/PB/CS LEO Computers Ltd Company Secretary's Papers


Description: Files of correspondence and other documents relating to the development of the LEO Computer, initially kept by LEO Computers Ltd Company Secretary, Michael A. Holmyard, and later acquired and sorted by Peter Bird.

Dates: 1949-1967

Archive Reference: CMLEO/PB/CS (PJB/2/7-8)

Conservation note: Once collected by Peter Bird, the papers were then bound in the 1990s by a non-specialist bookbinder. Many of the documents were cut to size to fit a particular chosen standard size, and many sustained further damage from over-enthusiastic gluing during the binding process. As part of the current cataloguing and digitisation project, the archivist and the LEO Computers Society agreed that the documents should be removed from the bindings to allow digitisation. The papers have now been stored loose in acid-free archive folders.
