Norman Sanders Book Release

3 March 2021

Norman Sanders has published a book in association with Archives of IT (AIT) called My Computing Life, which covers the history of an important period of computer development from the mid-1950s to 1970.

Sanders was interviewed for AIT by Mark Jones on two occasions in November 2018 and those conversations prompted him to record a selection of his experiences and reflections for the book.

He was particularly notable for bringing the computer to bear on British industry through his meetings with Prime Minister Sir Harold Wilson and has many stories about the early pioneers in Britain, having met or worked with Maurice Wilkes, David Wheeler, Alan Turing and others.

My Computing Life has been published and is available from Cambridge Scholars
