Material collected by Strachey for his enquiry into current research.

In February 1963 Strachey circularised numerous universities and researchers who made 'unusual' uses of computers in their work. He sent out 63 queries which elicited 35 replies by 15 March (the date on which he prepared the report); several replies were received subsequent to that date.

The folder includes a copy of Strachey's original letter, a list of those circularised, Strachey's manuscript notes and a copy of his report on the enquiry (4 typescript pages; circulated as paper 15 of the Working Party - see MS. Eng. misc. b. 286/E.27).

Strachey numbered each reply as it was received and they are presented in this order. He also numbered correspondingly the names on the mailing list and thus this list serves as a useful index to the material.

See MS. Eng. misc. b. 286/E.30 for replies to letters received by D.M. MacKay on this subject.
