A few updates. I e-mailed Peter Salus about QCU primary sources. He wrote:
Sorry to say (a) most of the photos were borrowed (from, e.g. Kirk
McKusick and Debbie Scherrer) and then returned. The transcripts of
interviews, etc., were on a DEC back-up tape that went astray about 20
years ago, but even then, I knew no one who could read it. (You know,
when QCU was in process, Addison-Wesley was just installing a way to
receive mss. electronically.)
So I'll hit on these people and others soon :-)

We're absolutely a good home for scanned ephemera and photos. We do
a lot of it. Examples of collections we have:
You can begin to scan things and we can host it generally, and then as
the set grows we can make you a collection.
Therefore, I propose that we start uploading scans of Unix photos and
memorabilia to archive.org and then ask Jason to make a collection to
hold all of this. How does that sound?
