Comments: Collection of the Origins of Cyberspace Up For Auction at Christies

Regarding scanning the items for a virtual museum, lot 58 (http://www.christies.com/LotFinder/search/LotDetail.asp?intObjectID=4443526&SN=1484&LN=0058) turns out to be a set of documents involving the original FORTRAN compiler. For the last year, I have been tracking down source code, documentation, and related information about early FORTRAN -- my weblog Dusty Decks (http://www.mcjones.org/dustydecks/) documents my progress. It will be possible for the Computer History Museum to have an excellent virtual exhibit on FORTRAN history and eventually other aspects of the history of software.
