Last year we received a donation of a DEC PDP-11/35, two Alpha Servers, an Apple PowerPC, and other items from the estate of Raun (Spider) Boardman. Spider was one of DEC's PDP-10 experts. Today Spider's wife Mollie and his daughter Kathryn came for a visit, and dropped off more DEC PDP-10 documentation and manuals. The new items look very interesting. We will get them scanned and uploaded to bitsavers.
