                      THE OUGHTRED SOCIETY

                    http://www.oughtred.org/

  The Oughtred Society was founded in 1991 by a group of
  like-minded slide rule collectors. The original intent of
  the Society was to provide a venue for the exchange of
  information about slide rules. The organization was named for
  William Oughtred, an English clergyman and mathematician who
  is generally credited with the invention of both the linear
  and the circular slide rules.

  Meet William Oughtred, inventor of the modern slide rule;
  learn about the history and background of the Oughtred
  Society and its principles; join or renew membership; browse
  tables of contents of The Journal of The Oughtred Society;
  view a listing of upcoming events such as shows and annual
  meetings; find data on American patents for slide rules.
