The Burroughs Corporation began in 1886 as the American Arithmometer Company. It was formed with the intent of selling the adding machine invented by William Seward Burroughs. The company started in St. Louis, Missouri where Burroughs was living at the time. The company moved its entire operations to Detroit, Michigan in 1904. By 1905 the company had settled in Detroit and the name was changed to the Burroughs Adding Machine Company, in honor of William S. Burroughs who had died in 1898. Operations resumed almost immediately, and for about the next fifty years, Burroughs grew into the biggest adding machine company in the United States. It introduced many different products, including many variations of the basic adding machine, typewriters, check protectors, ticketeers, and finally, computers. In 1953 the Burroughs Adding Machine Company was renamed the Burroughs Corporation, a name more reflective of their broad scope of products. They still had a strong market in adding and calculating machines, especially at banks and similar institutions. However, they were also moving into the computer field about this time. Their experience with the military during WWII also steered them toward the computer field, and they worked with the government on numerous contracts after the end of the war. As Burroughs Corporation concentrated more and more on computers, they still marketed toward their prime customers, banking institutions. However, as time passed, their mainframes and other computers were given a greater market. IBM, of course, was far ahead of Burroughs in terms of sales and revenues, but Burroughs was often the next competitor behind them. In September 1986, Burroughs Corporation and Sperry Corporation completed a merger that had been started over a year before. W. Michael Blumenthal, president of Burroughs Corporation, and Joseph J. Kroger, president of Sperry Corporation, became Chairman/CEO and Vice-Chairman, respec.

The first Burroughs Corporation patent was applied for by William S. Burroughs on January 10, 1885 and it was granted on August 21, 1888. He was not alone, however, as several people both in the United States and elsewhere had applied for patents for various calculating devices, including Dorr E. Felt, who invented the Comptometer. There is confusion as to whether Burroughs or Felt actually had the "first" adding machine. Burroughs filed his application for a patent was about a year and a half earlier than Felt's, but Felt's patents were granted in 1887. Burroughs' machine also had several unique features not found on other machines including: a single lever stroke that computed the answer and printed it on paper, printing (or listing) of individual items, self-correction and checking before finally pulling the lever, and the dash pot to regulate the operating mechanism and compensate for the different styles of lever pulling by the operators.

The Burroughs Corporation was one of the largest adding machine and electronic computer manufacturers in the United States. It began as the American Arithmometer Company in 1886, founded in St. Louis around a machine invented by William S. Burroughs, an accountant who desired to develop a practical adding and listing machine. By 1905 the headquarters and plant were relocated to Detroit and the company was renamed the Burroughs Adding Machine Company. Over the next twenty years the company acquired a number of related firms and expanded its product line to include adding machines, nonlisting calculators, bookkeeping machines, and transit listing machines for banks. By the end of World War II there were 773 sales.

branches, service centers, and dealer offices throughout the world and sales had grown to $46 million. In 1953 the company changed its name to the Burroughs Corporation; three years later it acquired the ElectroData Corporation, which became a foundation of Burroughs' entry into the computer industry. Throughout the next three decades, Burroughs was a leader in mainframe computer systems for commercial and military applications. In 1980 it acquired System Development Corporation, and a year later the Memorex Corporation. In 1986 the company agreed to a merger with Sperry and became part of the Unisys Corporation.

The results revealed that in the public's mind, Burroughs was linked with adding and bookkeeping machines, but not computers or electronic computing devices. Several changes were suggested to bring more recognition to Burroughs' lesser-known products. There were also some changes to and standardization of company logos and correspondence.

In 1984, Burroughs hired the consulting firm of Siegel and Gale to do an image study of the company. The 1984-1985 corporate identity program consisted of an audit of existing company conditions, interviews with top management players at Burroughs, financial studies, market research, and a review of the business press. The report discussed Burroughs strengths and weaknesses, and then suggested directions for the future. As a result of the corporate identity program, there were changes at Burroughs, including a new company logo.

As a publicly traded company, the Burroughs Corporation was required to report financial data to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Burroughs filed quarterly (Form 10-Q) and annual (Form 10-K) reports, which summarized financial information about the company and the business it did during the past quarter or year. Burroughs filed S4 forms in 1986, to register "securities issued in business combination transactions." The 1986 S4 filings were required as a result of the merger with the Sperry Corporation.

Burroughs also created and collected information related to the performance of the company's stock.

The Burroughs Corporation began in 1886 as the American Arithmometer Company. It was formed with the intent of selling the adding machine invented by William Seward Burroughs. The company started in St. Louis, Missouri where Burroughs was living at the time. The company moved its entire operations to Detroit, Michigan in 1904.

By 1905 the company had settled in Detroit and the name was changed to the Burroughs Adding Machine Company, in honor of William S. Burroughs who had died in 1898. Operations resumed almost immediately, and for about the next fifty years, Burroughs grew into the biggest adding machine company in the United States. It introduced many different products, including many variations of the basic adding machine, typewriters, check protectors, ticketeers, and finally, computers.

In 1953 the Burroughs Adding Machine Company was renamed the Burroughs Corporation, a name more reflective of their broad scope of products. They still had a strong market in adding and calculating machines, especially at banks and similar institutions. However, they were also moving into the computer field about this time. Their experience with the military during WWII also steered them toward the computer field, and they worked with the government on numerous contracts after the end of the war.

As Burroughs Corporation concentrated more and more on computers, they still marketed toward their prime customers, banking institutions. However, as time passed, their mainframes and other computers were given a greater market. IBM, of course, was far ahead of Burroughs in terms of sales and revenues, but Burroughs was often the next competitor behind them.

In September 1986, Burroughs Corporation and Sperry Corporation completed a merger that had been started over a year before. W. Michael Blumenthal, president of Burroughs Corporation, and Joseph J. Kroger, president of Sperry Corporation, became Chairman/CEO and Vice-Chairman, respectively, of the new company -- Unisys Corporation. The merger, which was actually an acquisition of Sperry by Burroughs for $4.8 billion, put Unisys into second place in the computer market in 1986, with revenues of about $10.5 billion. This was the largest merger in the computer industry's history, and although impressive, Unisys was still only about 1/5 the size of IBM. A period of reorganization followed the merger, with the closing of some facilities, combining of similar departments in Burroughs and Sperry, and the divestment of non-computer-related businesses.

William Seward Burroughs, inventor of an adding machine and a founder of the American Arithmometer Company (which was renamed in his honor in 1905), was born in rural New York, although the date of Burroughs' birth has been hard to establish, it was between 1855 and 1858. He became a bank clerk at the Cayuga County National Bank in Auburn, New York in the 1870s, but eventually moved to St. Louis for health reasons.

It was here, in the early 1880s, in a small area of the Boyer Machine Company shop, that he started working on the bank clerk's dream--the adding machine. After several years, he applied for a patent, eventually granted in 1888. The earliest machines were great prototypes, but when in the hands of inexperienced users would give outrageous answers. Burroughs answered the challenge by designing (in a few days), the "dash pot," a mechanism that regulated the pull on the adding machine's handle.

The next challenge was to convince banks and businesses that they needed this new machine, surprisingly not an easy thing to do. With a few salesmen who doubled as the service department, the American Arithmometer Company set out to add a new machine into the "modern-day" offices at the end of the nineteenth century. William Seward Burroughs only glimpsed the beginning of the office automation phenomenon, for he died, in Citronelle, Alabama, in 1898.

Burroughs saved a few circuit boards from their computers of the 1950's and 1960's as display pieces that later ended up in the company archives. Along with a few code cards and some miscellaneous pieces, this became the "artifacts" that were donated to the Charles Babbage Institute.

The Coleman Table Artifacts have a rather interesting history. The display table was made at the request of Burroughs' President John S. Coleman; many of the items were located inside the table. The next president, Ray Eppert, was not interested in having it in his office, so it was taken by the General Manager of the Burroughs Detroit Division, Lyle Blossom. Edward Schening was its next owner, and upon his retirement, the table was given to Dr. Robert R. Johnson, Vice President-Engineering.

Burroughs Corporation and Sperry Corporation (formerly Sperry Rand and Sperry Univac), completed their merger in September of 1986 to form the Unisys Corporation.

Burroughs Corporation started in 1886 as the American Arithmometer Company selling adding machines. The Sperry Corporation evolved out of the Sperry Gyroscope Company (founded by Elmer Ambrose Sperry in 1910). Both companies eventually became involved in the electronics and computer industries.
