Count On It: Two Hundred Years of Computing
Circuit board

A Jackson Pollock painting? Not quite—it's a circa 1988 circuit board for a DPS8000 mainframe computer, currently on display in the Kresge Physical Sciences Library exhibition, Count on It: Two Hundred Years of Computing. The exhibition, which includes items from Dartmouth's Allen King Collection of Historic Scientific Instruments, follows the evolution of computing as a function performed by people ("computer" used to be a job description) to one performed by analog and digital machines. Also on display is a slideshow of archival photographs illustrating the use of computational tools at Dartmouth.
