Enrico--The Computer History Museum has some interesting ads from various software companies starting in the 1970s through the 1990s. I assume that you can search the CHM website to find them. Specific companies include MSA (originally Management Science America) in the John Imlay collection and ads from the Relational Database "wars" with Oracle, Informix, etc.

Subject: [SIGCIS-Members] History of computer advertising

Dear list members, 

For an article I’m writing I am interested in the history of computer adverts in newspapers (1955-1995), but I am having a hard time to find literature on the topic. 

Maybe some of you could suggest me some literature on computer advertising ? 

Also, I would be interested to find collections of computer adverts, possibly digitized and accessible online. Any suggestions ? 

Enrico Natale
