Overview

Collection contains information about Burroughs "Corporate Events," these consisting mostly of retirement parties for the top executives of the company, and special visitors invited by the company.

Historical Note

Retirement parties and visits of distinguished guests gave Burroughs reason to celebrate these out of the ordinary events. When Burroughs' top people retired, they were often honored at a luncheon or dinner, where they received toasts, speeches in their honor, and several gifts from the company. Likewise, when special guests of Burroughs were in town, they were often treated to meals, visits of the factory and facilities, and often tours of the city.

The materials in this collection are arranged into the following groups:
  1. Executive Visits
  2. Retirements

Acquisition:

The records were given to the Charles Babbage Institute by Unisys Corporation in 1991, accession 991-35.
