Do the modules look like they'd plug into a Q-Bus or Unibus backplane? If
so they can't be much older than about 35 years old I believe (if that).
DEC itself I was started in '58, IIRC. Joe's book might have some of the
info you need, there are a whole slew of Logic Handbooks from the late 60's
through the late 70's (towards the end they changed the name).
