The Victor W. D. Hale papers consist of two series - one devoted to the Conference on high-speed automatic calculating machines
held at the Cambridge University Mathematical Laboratory June 22-25, 1949, and one consisting of papers relating to EDSAC
from both before and after the conference.
Victor W. D. Hale worked as a code breaker at Bletchley Park, England during World War II. After the war, he was associated
with Trinity College, but it is not certain in what capacity (student or professor). In the fall of 1949, he joined the Department
of Mathematics at the University of Hull. In the early 1960s, he moved to York University where he was a Senior Lecturer and
was head of the department from 1966 to 1967. He retired in 1987 and died in 2004.
