Dutch Circle of Slide Rule Collectors

Summary                            

Founded in 1991, The Dutch Circle has grown into an informal group of about 60 collectors, 
sharing the following goals:

  1. mutual support of members for collecting and research
  2. promotion of public knowledge and awareness of the historical interest of the slide rule

These goals are pursued by issuing our periodical "MIR", by organising meetings,
presence at fairs, by publishing papers, books, catalogues, interviews and by
communicating with Dutch and international  communities of collectors and
other interested parties.

End 2004 the area of interest has been expanded, and the name of the Circle was changed to

Kring Historische Rekeninstrumenten
(Dutch Circle for Historical Calculating Instruments)
