This is a list of computer collectors from all over the world. If you have a computer that you want to get rid of, contact a collector near you. I should mention that some of these collectors are both mobile and also willing to bring in computers from all over the United States and Canada. If the collector near you isn't interested in your computer, contact any or all of the people listed here. Alternatively, if you live near someone here, and if you collect computers yourself, why not get together and compare notes ... or ROMs. Then make sure you send us your information and we can post it here. Let's make this site a meeting place for computer collectors everywhere. Pop back now and then to see what's changed!
Note to collectors who used to be on this list: If you haven't supplied a current and permanent email, you have been deleted from this list. If I can't contact you then it follows that donors can't contact you either which defeats the purpose of the list. Cheers. firstname.lastname@example.org

|Steve Thatcher||305 Walnut Drive
Fredericksburg, VA 22405
|I have been involved from day one back in the 70s. I am
especially interested in Intel ISIS machines such as the MDS 225/230. I
actually was running ISIS on a Northstar machine back then and I am
trying to resurrect all the data that I have on 8" floppies which I
kept all these years. I have a few Northstar systems, Heathkit H88/89
systems, TDL Dual 8" floppy system, a few custom
systems, a bunch of Cromenco hardware, and a mostly working MDS 225 at the moment and a growing collection of documentation on S100 cards. I live in the Fredericksburg, VA area.
|William Maddox||Cupertino, California||Minicomputers, generally
pre-1980, especially those with a full "blinkenlights"
front panel. Particularly looking for PDP-8, early-model PDP-11, DG Nova, and
lesser-known/defunct brands, also early microcomputers that were sold into the
traditional "professional" minicomputer market.
|Timothy P. Radde||Philadelphia area (anything within 4-5 hours is fine.)||I am
interested in anything DEC from the early
70's to early to mid 80s. Mostly pdp-8, but some 11 stuff too (mostly something with a full front panel).

|Phil Guerney||Brisbane, AUSTRALIA||I
collect and restore small home computers up to 1985, the smaller the
better! I like to include disk systems and all accessories except
printers (but even those when brand and style match the computer)
especially for the under-powered home machines. Software and hardware
that attempted to make such systems useable in business and scientific
applications is especially fascinating. About 100 systems in the
collection so far, which means that much common stuff is accounted for.
But I am particularly after the KIM-1 and the Exidy Sorcerer. If you
want your system to go to a good home, to be restored and kept well for
the future, please contact me.

||Personal computers (not IBMs), especially VZ200VZ300 and Apple II.I am interested in Personal Non-IBM computers of all sorts particularly unique or unusual hardware, working or not. Likewise I am after "Pre-personal" computers from before systems where commonly available. CPU trainers that were sold as "Kits" such as the Educ- 8 and the Dream 6800 and the like to show people programming and train on how systems worked and as intro to programming. If you need a good home for any system, let me know and I'll at least be able to store them until a better home is found. Software and especially books and documentation are not essential but certainly desirable.|
