ABSTRACT
<p>Erwin Tomash developed an interest in the history of computing and information processing early in the 1960s. Capping a successful business career many years later, and after a number of exploratory consultations with historians, business colleagues, archives, and museum professionals, he pursued his historical interest by founding the Charles Babbage Institute.</p>
