Scope and Content

This collection is an extensive gathering of local Fairfax County history as it relates to the development of computational technology in the Northern Virginia region. There is a lot of military history from the Cold War, weapons development programs, as well as the development of the public face of the Internet. Dr. Ceruzzi's research ranged from the development of Tysons Corner as a small hamlet to the bustling office and shopping center it eventually became. His work collected here shows the many aspects of Northern Virginia that were involved not only in the growth of the Internet and the local region as a suburb of D.C. but also the constant presence of military and government officials, some less subtle than others. The collection is made up of research papers, declassified military intelligence documents, research done by the various contractor corporations that were drawn to the region, and interviews with prominent individuals, such as Til Hazel and George Johnson, former president of George Mason University. Also included were several empty folders, which have been removed from the collection. The titles of these folders were "NSFnet, circa 1995," "Radio Tower" and "Tower Pix."

The collection is made up of papers, photographs, maps, and newspapers.
