UNISYS visit

Brian Daly at UNISYS met with Bill Mauchly, Al Rollin (pres. of UNISYS Retirees Group), Joe LaViola of the Historic Committee, and Jim Reed to discuss the different ideas on the table for an ENIAC replica, and/or a UNIVAC 1 in the Marketplace at East Falls location. Documenting first hand stories from retirees about the UNIVAC 1 was noted as an important role of the museum. The video recording process is fairly affordable these days and could commence within the museum space before renovations begin.
This paints a picture of a museum that will be continuously evolving and growing in its mission to bring Philadelphians a fresh and exciting look at its own heritage and importance in world history.
