Overview

Series contains one folder of mostly historical material on the sales department and how the distributive organization worked.

Historical Note

Over the years, the organization of the sales/distributive department was changed. As Burroughs grew bigger, they needed more agencies, managers and salesmen. The sales and distribution grew from the original three salesmen when the company started to the hundreds of regional offices and managers and thousands of salesmen Burroughs employed at the time of their merger with Sperry Corporation in 1986.

Acquisition:

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