Archive of Collections


Archive of Collections
is a new service of The Oughtred Society where we present the collections of members, including images and descriptive information for all items in the collections. These collections will be preserved on the Oughtred Society web site for use by slide rule enthusiasts and for posterity.

The Main Page of the Archive displays each item as a thumbnail image with brief name and description. Clicking these thumbnail images reveals detailed information from a spreadsheet of the entire collection (compiled by Oughtred Society member Clark McCoy). In this spreadsheet is descriptive information about each item and links to several images.

The first presentation is the outstanding collection of the late Tom Wyman, some 300 items, consisting of slide rules and related objects.

Instructions for using the Archive:

• Select the collection you wish to view. See Index below.
• Select title of collection or HERE to view thumbnail page.
• Select thumbnail image of the item you wish to view.
• The relevant row from the master spreadsheet appears.
• Select any image link or descriptive information link in your item's row to view additional details.
