Correspondence regarding arrangements for Strachey's lectures, and organisation of the summer school. Preliminary notices, list of participants, programme, and correspondence regarding publication.

This Summer School was sponsored by the NATO Science Committee, organised under the auspices of the Technical University of Denmark, 7-25 August 1967.

Strachey delivered a course of lectures called 'Fundamental Concepts in Programming Languages'. He wrote the lectures up for publication, but the official conference proceedings were not published. Several hundred copies of Strachey's paper were circulated privately. In his annotated bibliography (MS. Eng. misc. b. 248/A.3) Strachey called it 'an important paper; it describes the basic principles underlining computing in a relatively un-mathematical manner'.
