A group of important texts emanating from the pioneering computer firm Engineering Research Associates (ERA), originally formed out of a group of demobilised World War II naval cryptographers. Initially famous for their numerical computers ERA were known latterly for their drum memory systems (the first work here is a proposal to supply a magnetic drum-based inventory control system to Wright Air Development Center). ERA was later purchased by Remington Rand and integrated into their UNIVAC department.

The third work is THE FIRST GENUINE TEXTBOOK ON COMPUTING TECHNIQUES AND COMPUTER HARDWARE, and influenced computer developments across North America and the rest of the world.
