Would be nice to save what of this can still be recovered.
It was disturbing to hear DECUS threw stuff out, but not
surprising. I know of other such actions. Stuff Dennis
Ritchie donated to a former East Coast Computer Museum
was discarded and I also know of stuff given to USENIX
that they tossed (luckily some of that has been recovered
but I am sure much was lost permanently).
