These papers are related to a trip to America by Oliver Standingford and Raymond Thompson, two employees of J Lyons and Co. They were sent to America to look at new business methods. While there, they heard about the EDSAC, one of the earliest British computers, being built in Cambridge. The discoveries made on this trip were instrumental in J Lyons and Co becoming the first British company to use a computer, the LEO I.
