Where would DEC Technical Reports prior to 1980 would be found - on the
web?
The following reference is one I've never sighted, thought it was
referenced (as unsighted in Ross William's 1993 Painless guide to CRC
posting).

Wecker, S (1974). "A Table-Lookup Algorithm for Software Computation of
Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC)". Digital Equipment Corporation
memorandum.

or

Wecker, S., "A Table-Lookup Algorithm for Software Computation of Cyclic
Redundancy Check,"
Technical Note, Digital Equipment Corporation, January 1974.

HP has "heritage" DEC/Compaq Technical Reports 1981-2002 at
http://www.hpl.hp.com/techreports/Compaq-DEC/
but not earlier ones it seems.

Google books and scholar show references to the paper, other papers and
a book by Stuart Wecker in the 1970-80 period, but don't seem to give
links to DEC Technical reports or memoranda prior to 1980.
Google groups showed some people reminiscing about using the Stuart
Weckers algorithm in comp.lang.lisp.

I didn't see anything relevant in WorldCat or searching the Computer
History Museum collection, nor from a quick glance at BitSavers.

Suggestions or just ask HP?
