Turing Papers Latest: They Can Still Be Saved

As we mentioned last week, Alan Turing's paper were going under the hammer yesterday afternoon at Christie's in central London. The rare collection of documents however fail to sell, the bidding coming £60,000 short of the reserve price of £300,000.

Meanwhile, the campaign to keep the papers in the UK has received the boost of £100,000 donation from Google. This means that there is still a chance for the documents to be bought by Bletchley Park.

You can donate here to help Bletchley Park, where Turing worked as a code-breaker during WWII, buy the parpers.
