Back in 1993, the late Aaron Wyner and I edited Claude Elwood Shannon's papers, and most of them appeared in a volume (Claude Elwood Shannon's Collected Papers) which was published by the IEEE Press. However, there were a number of items written by Shannon of lesser interest which we did not include (some declassified wartime memoranda, obscure AT&T Bell Labs memos, some mimeographed MIT lecture notes, etc.). These we put into a binder, held together by an Acco metal strip. We made half a dozen copies, and gave copies to the Library of Congress, the British Library, the Bell Laboratories Library, the MIT Library, to Claude Shannon himself, and to one or two other places. Over the years many people have asked me if it was possible to get access to this collection. I had now had this volume scanned and converted to pdf files. The total size of the files is about 450 megabytes. Neil J. A. Sloane, October 13, 2013
