The Hewitt D. Crane papers are open for research. Crane was an engineer and inventor at Stanford Research Institute from 1956 to 2005. He worked on many projects including all-magnetic computing and logic systems, presenting the idea of an all-magnetic computer at the Fall Joint Computer Conference in 1959. A prototype of a very early all-magnetic computer from SRI is in CHM’s collectionhttp://tinyurl.com/jtmy9o5. View the collection guide at http://tinyurl.com/zxtwkxa. Thank you to the Council on Library and Information Resources’ Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives grant for providing the funds that made processing this collection possible!
