CHM Archives News:

The John C. McPherson collection is open for research. McPherson had a long and influential career at IBM from 1930 to 1971 where, among other things, he was involved in the development of the Selective Sequence Electronic Calculator (SSEC) and was an early and important advocate of the APL programming language.

Thank you to the Council on Library and Information Resources’ Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives grant for providing funds that made processing this collection possible.
