Held at the Weston Library

  • Request

(Originally kept with MS. Eng. misc. b. 258/C.29).

Six bundles of notes and photographs, with notes and explanations by Strachey, as follows:

  1. 'Example of machine errors. The machine (literally) had a screw loose when it did this'.
  2. 'Photographs of the monitor tube display during a game of draughts. These are best viewed at arm's length'.
  3. 'Examples of draughts as played by the machine. Most of these were experimental and show signs of errors, either in the programme or in the machine'.
  4. 'The complete programme for draughts as printed out by the computer' (dated 10 July 1952).
  5. 'Flow diagram and programme for the inner section of draughts. This part allows the machine to decide its own move. (This is my own working copy - hence its dog-eared state)'.
  6. 'Draughts. Instructions'.
