 William Seward Burroughs I

Burroughs was an inventor born in Rochester, New York 
who invented a "calculating machine" designed to ease
the monotony of clerical work. He was a founder of the
American Arithmometer Company (1886), which later
became the Burroughs Adding Machine Company
(1904), then the
Burroughs Corporation (1953)
and in 1986, merged with
Sperry Corporation to
form
Unisys.
