Scope and Content Note
This series includes information on companies acquired by the Control Data Corporation (CDC), subsidiaries of CDC, and joint ventures in which CDC was involved. The materials do not necessarily constitute the official records of transaction, although some files do contain legal documents and agreements. Many of the files are executives' subject files on companies, consisting of a few folders and including background materials on the company as well as CDC acquisition reports and correspondence. More extensive documentation is included for a few companies, such as C-E-I-R, ETA Systems, Inc., and City Venture Corporation. Some general CDC acquisitions files are also included in this series.
The bulk of the materials are from 1951-1991, but there are some documents in the Commercial Credit Corporation files from as early as 1917.
Researchers should consult the Executive Papers series and the Legal Records series for additional information on the Control Data Corporation's acquisitions, subsidiaries and joint ventures.
This is one series of the Control Data Corporation Records (CBI 80). Please see the other series finding aids for further information regarding the Control Data Corporation.
