This oral history briefly addresses Norberg’s education and early career at the University of California-Berkeley’s Bancroft Library and the National Science Foundation before shifting to provide detailed information on the origins and first two and a half decades of the Charles Babbage Institute (CBI) and Charles Babbage Foundation (CBF). Norberg was the founding director and longtime leader of the Charles Babbage Institute and discusses his early priorities with CBI, and its development as the premier international historical research center and archives repository focused on the history of computing. This includes discussion of personnel, projects, strategies, publications, relationships to other institutions (University of Minnesota, American Federation of Information Processing Societies, CBF, etc.), and other topics.
