Computer Faire, Series 1, 1968-1991

Series Scope and Content

This series contains Warren’s files on the Computer Faire, revealing his systems for organizing and managing this widely attended event. The largest part of this series relates to companies and organizations that exhibited at the Faire. Second in quantity are Warren’s files on the speakers who participated in the Faire’s presentations and sessions. Last, and smallest, in this series is Warren’s general administrative material documenting various aspects of the events’ planning and coordination. The parts of the series concerning exhibitors and speakers cover the Computer Faire’s first few years before Warren sold his rights to the event in 1983, while the administrative material spans a larger time period ending the same year that the last Faire was held. Warren’s original alphabetical filing order is preserved in the first two parts of this series relating to exhibitors and speakers. The third portion, administrative material, was found in a less usable order and was arranged by records’ functions and types.


This series is arranged into 3 subseries:
Subseries 1.1, Exhibitors, 1968-1982
Subseries 1.2, Speakers, 1976-1983
Subseries 1.3, Administrative material, 1976-1991

Exhibitors, Subseries 1.1, 1968-1982

Subseries Scope and Content

This subseries contains files on companies and organizations that exhibited at the first few years of Computer Faire events – mainly from 1977 to 1981. Most of this material consists of agreements and correspondence between Warren and exhibiting companies reserving exhibitor booths at the events. Companies of special interest or with larger quantities of material include Apple Computer Inc., Atari, Fairchild Semiconductor, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Texas Instruments, and Verbatim. Some of the files in this subseries comprise Warren’s more general corporate profiles with contact information and reference files. Also included are material on the mailing list that Warren kept on Computer Faire attendees and exhibitors. Warren and Computer Faire Inc. maintained several mailing lists of computer industry professionals and organizations that Warren had printed into label sets to be sold to other companies and individuals (mostly advertisers). The people who bought Warren’s mailing lists could use them to send mail solicitations as a means to advertise and coordinate. Correspondence, promotional material, and address-tracking for these mailing lists are all included in this subseries. Warren’s original alphabetical order by company name is preserved with each folder group cataloged under its corresponding letter of the alphabet.

Administrative material, Subseries 1.3, 1976-1991

Subseries Scope and Content

This subseries contains Computer Faire administrative records relating to the coordination of speakers into panels, advertising for each Computer Faire, outreach, and various aspects of planning. About half of the records in this subseries are published under Computer Faire Inc., which owned and operated this event from the first fair Computer Faire in 1977 until Warren sold the rights to the event venture in 1983 to Prentice Hall. Most of the post-1983 records were published under Interface Group, led by Sheldon Adelson, who acquired the rights to the fair event soon after 1983 and managed it until its last show in 1991. The largest group of records in this subseries consists of correspondence with potential speakers, panelists, and chairpersons – including Warren himself acting in all three roles – along with presentation material, instructions for speakers and participants, and Warren's notes and listings of potential speakers. These records deal with coordinating groups of speakers and instructing all Computer Faire speakers, as opposed to the records in subseries 1.2, which are filed individually by each speaker’s surname. Other parts of this subseries include Computer Faire programs and exhibition guides, press, and correspondence regarding advertising. , and recordsRecords and transcriptions from the West Coast Computer Faire Advisory Board are also included here. The West Coast Computer Faire Advisory Board was set up after 1983, subsequent to Warren’s exit from the venture. Lastly, this subseries contains documents relating to the formation of an association of computer retailers, which include documentation of meetings between computer store owners at different events, especially the Computer Faire, questionnaires filled out by Computer Faire participants interested in joining this retailer association, and directories of personal computer stores. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by folder title.
