BOWLING FOR TECHNOLOGY
At the 1966 BPAA All-Star Tournament, Brunswick employees were seen delving into the cutting-edge technology of the time. They scrutinized the Burroughs B 300, a data processing system introduced in 1965, capable of generating instant score reports. Burroughs, renowned for its adding machines since the late 1800s, was a trailblazer in developing data processors and systems, utilized by the U.S. military and corporations during the 20th century. This image captures the sport of bowling’s embrace of innovative technology to enhance the player experience and streamline tournament operations.
