Correspondence regarding Strachey's appointment to the Corporation, with M.H.A. Newman, Lord Halsbury and others, October-December 1951. Strachey's letter to Newman of 5 October 1951 gives a clear outline of his career to date, referring to his growing interest in digital computing via M. Woodger and ACE, A.M. Turing and the Manchester machine, his draughts programme, etc.

Newman's and Halsbury's letters refer to the impressive quality of the programs prepared by Strachey for the Manchester machine, including his 'God Save the King' musical program.
