Bob Doran at the Computer History Museum

Our very own Bob Doran has made the Computer History Museum in Mountain View California. He gave a lunchtime lecture titled The Totalisator – An Algorithm That Led to an Industry. The lecture accompanied Bob's donation of a totaliser adder to the museum. The adder, now one of only two in the museum, is a post-World War II unit, ca. 1947 and came from the totaliser at Manawatu Racing Club's racetrack in Awapuni/Palmerston North, New Zealand.
