Hi. I came into possession of six hundred (600) 5 1/4" diskettes labelled, "Western World Computer Club Source Disks." A business card was in the box with the name H.C. Lewis. See the photo at:

After some sleuthing, I found that this club was in Oklahoma, and Lewis was a person who ran a Technical School of the same name. I'm guessing that these are MS-DOS disks, because one of the disks had the word "DOS" written on it. But that's the best that my google skills can produce.

Does anybody know what I have, here? Or anything about Lewis or the Computer Club? Should these be preserved somewhere? Thanks!

Hi, Jscott Scott of Internet Archive. They absolutely should be preserved. I can do it or point you to people to do it, or help you do it yourself.

I also would like to recommend that the process should be done by those who
are already familiar with floppy disks and drives. Because doing so without
any or not enough experience may end up damaging the floppy disks instead,
especially considering that they likely to have aged quite a bit.

Jason, JJ! Sorry for not responding. I don't use Google very much. I have my own domain email. These "Western World Computer Club Source Disks" are important to me because they appear to be a genuine archive of something old and important. For all I know, I may have the ONLY available copy of this piece of history. Please contact me at mail4 <at> ware4 <dot> com, which is my real email address. We'll figure out how to save these.
