Hollerith Machines

26 04 2015

In Washington we visited the Holocaust Museum. We were fortunate to get tickets for 10:15am. Being that we were going up the Washington Monument at 2:30 we assumed an hour or so would be adequate time. An hour later and we were just completing the first floor. 3 hours later we decided we’d better call it quits and look at something else.

The display that most caught my attention was the Hollerith Machine. I had no idea such detailed information was kept of people at that time.
