Historical Note

Burroughs Machines, Ltd. (Burroughs Adding and Registering Machine Company, Ltd. from 1895-1905) has a history almost as long as Burroughs Corporation. The British rights were sold by the American Arithmometer Company when they needed money in their early years. The British rights were repurchased in 1904, and Burroughs Machines, Ltd., was a subsidiary up to the time of the Burroughs merger with Sperry Corporation that formed Unisys.

Arrangement of Collection

The materials are arranged chronologically into two series:
  1. Annual Reports
  2. General Ledgers

Acquisition:

The records were given to the Charles Babbage Institute by Unisys Corporation in 1991 and 2000.
