AMF Educational Computer Model 775A

 

We cannot find any information on this particular computer. AMF made a personalized version of this computer (Model 665/D) which measures roughly 1 foot by 1 foot. However, this computer measures 37.5" wide by 28" tall...it's gigantic! I can picture it sitting on a desk in the front of a classroom where every student can see it. If you have any information at all about this computer please contact us.

The only way we have to date is is a small sticker on the inside that says, "Accepted 1/24/72". We don't know if this was accepted right after purchasing it or if it was years later.

The voltage meter has the AMF logo followed by "Alexandria". There is a record of an American Machine & Foundry Company located at 1101 N. Royal Street which was torn down around 1999 and the Wall Street Journal quotes the Dept. of Energy, "This site handled (or was contaminated by) thorium and uranium, according to government records. The Department of Energy initially considered cleaning up this site under the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program, but determined that it didn't have the authority to do so."
