> The Burroughs B205 tape drive in South Carolina ... 
>     This was originally part of Claude Kagan's B205 system.

I contacted Mike Loewen because of my continuing interest in Claude 
Kagan's legacy:


Mike filled me in with the details of the tape drive's history, and I 
have my own knowledge of Claude's legacy. I produced the following Web 
page accordingly, and linked to it from my memorial Web page.


Currently it tracks those tape drives and other things Claude dispersed 
from the Burroughs B-205 systems he obtained. I'll add later, photos and 
notes about the B-205 and its loss in the barn fire several years ago.

There's some interest in ancient mainframes, and few of the vaccum-tube 
era digital systems still exist. So materials on the B-205 are worth
