Contents:
The substance varies from brief notes and headings for talks to substantial manuscript or typescript drafts, sometimes accompanied by research material, manufacturers' literature and correspondence.
The earlier lectures were undertaken while Strachey was employed by N.R.D.C. and often at its request; almost all of these refer to problems arising from projects in hand such as the Ferranti Pegasus, CPL, theory of programming, etc.
See Sections F and H for other lectures or papers by Strachey.
