The main emphasis of the material in Eric Sunderland’s collection is the hardware and software for the Manchester Atlas, 1962- 1971. The collection also contains material on the architecture of the MU5 computer system, 1968 -1978.
The collection is diverse in content, but is valuable for providing the perspective of a computer engineer concerned with the daily working of the Atlas computer. It includes information on the development of the working procedures and the testing and monitoring of the computer, as well as more personal material concerning Sunderland's use of the computer to produce compuetrised music.
