The National Archive for the History of Computing (NAHC) has recently
expanded its collection relating to LEO Computers, including a large
donation of documents by Peter Bird. A full listing can be found
below, as well as via the NAHC website:



Dr Jon Agar



Collaborations between J. Lyons & Company, a British catering company
with strong interests in new office management techniques, and
Cambridge University led to the production of a series of important
computers, called LEO - Lyons Electronic Office. LEO, operational in
1951, ran 'the world's first regular routine office computer job'. LEO
Computers Ltd was formed in 1954 with Anthony Salmon, J.R.M. Simmons
and T.R. Thompson as Directors. The company installed LEO computers in
many British offices, including Ford Motor Company and the 'clerical
factory' of the Ministry of Pensions at Newcastle. LEO Computers Ltd
merged with the computer interests of English Electric in 1963 to form
English Electric LEO. Subsequent mergers eventually found LEO
incorporated into ICL in 1968.
