Thanks for this, Erik! What an amazing film... the gender issues are almost too much to even unpack :)

My apologies for cross-posting (and, potentially, earlier posts).

We’ve recently digitized a ca. 25-minute film from Sperry Rand Corporation’s Univac Division, _An Introduction to Digital Computers_ (1969). You can read about it and view it on our Collections and Research News blog at: https://www.hagley.org/librarynews/introduction-digital-computers

Enjoy! We have the Sperry Rand Univac Division archives , additional archives of Sperry-Univac administrative and legal records; and an enormous AV archive, a portion of which can be found in our digital archives.
