Hi Mark,

Museum Archive Wilhelm Füßl and his co-head Matthias Roeschner will be 
pleased to help you to get access tu the Zuse papers.

By the way, the first page of the patent application can be found on the 
internet page of the book project "Konrad Zuse – Ein Computerpionier im 
„Dritten Reich“ und im Nachkriegsdeutschland" (Konrad Zuse - a computer 
pioneer in Nazi Germany and in Postwar Germany) at


My colleague Hans Dieter Hellige and I are writing a book on Zuse 
together with the head of the Deutsches Museum Archives, Wilhelm Füßl.

Best, Ulf
