boards from a Xerox MAXC Time Sharing System
MAXC stands for Multiple Access Xerox Computer and was a clone of a DEC PDP-10 timesharing system built in-house at Xerox PARC in the early 1970s. This was the first computer constructed at PARC. In 1984 the MAXC was decomissioned and taken apart, people picking out parts to bring home. Some of those parts are now housed at the DigiBarn.
Words on the MAXC Clock Card from its contributor, Ed Satterthwaite, who worked at Xerox PARC in the 70s and 80s:
Thanks Ed Satterthwaite
