Historical Research

Hursley HouseWith Len Peach's retirement the role of site Historian has passed to Dave Key who is continuing to research the history of the Hursley site and its people. Over the summer of 2011 this has included hosting visits from the Director of the Getty Institute, ex-"Supermariners" and their relatives and the unearthing of new information on Hursley's role in both World Wars, all of which has substantially added to our knowledge of the pre-IBM House and its occupants.

However, in parallel with the changes in the Museum and its collection of artefacts, we are hoping to begin to properly record the history of the last 50 years. To that end Dave would be very grateful if anyone has personal recollections of how the site changed (both physically and culturally), the projects they worked on and the people they worked with. In particular if you were involved in the early days of IBM Hursley, or worked on the Worthy Down / Army Pay Corps project, we'd like to hear from you. Dave's email address is dave_key@uk.ibm.com .
