Leo Society and Centre for Computing History Awarded Lottery Grant
Our friends the LEO Society are custodians of a number of artefacts and a great deal
of written material related to LEO Computers Ltd.
Like the Computer Conservation Society they have no premises in which the
material can be stored and displayed and some of it is “at risk”
as the individual custodians get older.
In concert with the Centre for Computing History in Cambridge they have appied for
and received a grant of £101,000 to develop plans for a facility in which
their archive can be secured.
If these plans are successful, a full development grant of £265,000 may follow.
Our hearty congratulations to both parties.
Obviously we wish them well in moving forward to realise their vision in full.
