IBM 1403 Printer

Precisely two years ago this evening at a candlelight service in Endicott, two wise men in the East - Don Manning and Jack Westermann gathered to recommend to a third wise man in the West - Robert Garner - that an IBM 1403-N1 printer would be a strategic addition to the IBM 1440 system being refurbished at the Center for Technology & Innovation in Binghamton, NY.  Revitalization of the Center's IBM 1403-N1 and development of modern electronics to drive the printer proceed apace.   Details in the attached summary report (1 page), images (2 page), Overview power point (8 pages), and Watson School appendix (5 pages).

Our talented, all volunteer team is poised to finish the job this spring -   what is missing is funding for Printer Controller electronic components.  You can help ensure the 1403-N1 prints in May 2015 by sponsoring one or more of the 132 Print Hammers in recognition of a colleague, a friend,a family member or yourself - $50/print hammer. For example, Bill Clark has sponsored Print Position # 2 in  honor of Dept R 51, the team that built the last type for the 1403 printers.   Please consider a 100% tax-deductible, IBM-matched donation on line at

or mail a check to CT&I, address below, and be sure to indicate your choice of print position and associated name.

All the best for 2015,
