Control Data Corporation 50th Anniversary
The Control Data Corporation, a computer manufacturing company established in 1957, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this week. Former CDC employees were here at CBI last month doing research in their company records, which CBI holds. The research that they did will be used in an exhibit and a slideshow for the anniversary celebration.
The CDC Records are one of the largest and most heavily used collections that we have. The records document many aspects of the history of the U.S. computer manufacturing industry from the 1950s through the 1990s. The collection includes a large number of photographs, a database of which will be online and available for use through the CBI web site by next summer.
