The computer age dawns : the secret pioneers
Some of the boldest early steps into the computer age were taken in Britain. Alan Turing, the father of modern computing, did his main work at Cambridge University before joining the team of code-breakers at Bletchley Park near Milton Keynes. Soon afterwards the code breakers enlisted another unlikely recruit... a Post Office engineer named Tommy Flowers, who was to play a crucial role in the development of modern computing.

Computer Museum of America
The Computer Museum of America was established in 1983 by Jim and Marie Petroff, founders of the San Diego Chapter of Independent Computer Consultants Association (ICCA).
While without a display space in its early years, through the efforts of a tireless band of volunteers the Museum continued to collect and preserve historic computer equipment, as well as display portions of its collection every year at the California Computer Expo (formerly the San Diego Computer Fair).
