A big catch for the National Codes Centre

The National Codes Centre, at Bletchley Park, has secured funds from the National Heritage Memorial Fund to acquire the papers of Alan Turing, the greatest computer scientist of all time. Read more about it at the Guardian or on the BBC web site.

It's a tremendous result for the museum; hopefully they will do a good job of curating the materials and will make them available for ongoing study, as there is still lots about this period of history that is not well known.
