Scope and Contents:
The series documents the American federation of Information Processing Societies (AFIPS) activities during the late sixties, when the donor, Paul Armer, served as Chairman of the AFIPS Committee on the Social Implications of Information Processing Technology, as Vice President, and as President of AFIPS. AFIPS (the American Federation of Information Processing Societies) was organized on 10 May 1961. The founding societies were the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, the Institute of Radio Engineers (later combined to form the IEEE), and the Association for Computing Machinery. Prior to the founding of AFIPS, members of its founding societies began in 1951 to sponsor the Eastern and Western Joint Computer Conferences through the National Joint Computer Committee. The founding of AFIPS was a response to the perceived need of expanding the functions of that Committee.

This accession consists of records that document projects and exhibitions managed or created by the Section of Mathematics. Topics covered include the Computer History Project (CHP), the Technological Augmentation of Cognition conferences, and the exhibitions: 1876: A Centennial Exhibition and Theorems in Color.

The Computer History Project was a joint research effort between the Smithsonian Institution and the American Federation of Information Processing Societies (AFIPS) to gather information on the development of computer technology. The project closed in 1974. 1876: A Centennial Exhibition was a recreation of the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition in 1876 at the Arts and Industries Building. Theorems in Color consisted of an exhibition of 32 paintings based on mathematical theorems by Crockett Johnson, author of Harold and the Purple Crayon and the Barnaby comic strip. People documented in the collection include Uta C. Merzbach, Curator of Mathematics and Henry S. Tropp, CHP Principal Investigator.

Materials include correspondence, memoranda, reports, meeting agendas and minutes, agreements, contracts, floor plans, conference proceedings, object lists, exhibition scripts, press releases, postcards, and notes.
