Technology in History

Most histories of computing leave out the contributions of the American number theorists in the early 20th century who constructed specialized computing devices.

The most prominent of these were Derrick Norman Lehmer and Derrick Henry Lehmer.

Here are a few web pages with information about their computing devcies:
