Joseph Erlanger Papers

  • FC001
  • Collection
  • 1890-1964

The collection consists of eight series. The attempt has been made to maintain the original order as much as possible, and particularly in the correspondence and scientific data series. Much of the material, however, was transmitted and accessioned in small portions in the years 1963-1966, and in some cases items were placed on display in the Library before being arranged in series. The microfilming, moreover, was carried out before the final arrangement and analysis of the collection could be made; somewhat premature filming decisions have, therefore, affected the final arrangement that is presented here and some items are missing or poorly described on the film.

Wesley A. Clark Papers

  • FC186
  • Collection

This collection contains materials related to Wesley Clark’s work in the field of computer science and his involvement in international scholarly exchanges, with a small part of the collection related to his personal life. Materials related to his work in computer science focus primarily on the LINC (Laboratory INstrument Computer), Macromodular Computer Systems and processing written Chinese for computer display. There is a modest representation in the collection of Clark’s non-LINC work carried out at MIT:  Project Whirlwind, Lincoln Writer, L-1, and TX-2. These portions of the collection contain technical reports, memos, prototype drawings, LINC Evaluation program proceedings, publications, working notebooks, and notecards. The notebooks Wesley Clark used to develop his design of the LINC are of particular interest. Contract work represented includes Xerox PARC and Burroughs Corporation and contain expense statements, check stubs, reports, consulting agreements and correspondence.

Clark was involved in scholarly exchanges with the People’s Republic of China and the collection contains materials on multiple trips to China and materials from the CSCPRC (Committee on Scholarly Communication with the People’s Republic of China). Of particular interest is the 1972 visit to China where Clark, along with five other American computer experts (most accompanied by their wives), were selected to tour Chinese computer facilities. Materials include correspondence, minutes, newsletters, itineraries, travel journals, conference materials, brochures, articles, reports, notes, and ephemera.

Roughly half the collection is visual material in the form of photographs, contact sheets, negatives and slides. The majority of the visual collection include contact sheets and negatives (with a few photos) related to the projects and work carried out by the Computer Research Laboratory (CRL), later renamed the Computer Systems Laboratory, and focus on the LINC and Macromodular Computer Systems. Photographs, negatives and contact sheets of the 1972 trip to China are also noteworthy.

Thomas Jefferson Letter

  • PC011
  • Collection
  • 1810, 1814

This collection includes a single handwritten letter by former president Thomas Jefferson. The letter, dated December 26, 1814, was sent to John McAllister, an optician in Philadelphia. McAllister had crafted several sets of Jefferson’s lenses that were purchased during his second presidential term. Several years had passed since Jefferson bought the lenses and he had only just begun to use one of the sets McAllister had made. As he began using this particular set regularly, he found that a few didn’t work as desired. In the letter, Jefferson explains, in his eloquent style, what he perceives to be the problem and asks McAllister to repair the faulty lenses.
