Broderbund Founder Gives Company Archives to National Museum of Play

Broderbund Software founder Doug Carlston has donated some important items to The Strong's International Center for the History of Electronic Games (ICHEG) including company records, design documents and games for permanent archival at the Rochester, New York-based museum (thanks to Joysiq).

The Strong's Broderbund Software Collection includes some pretty amazing stuff including material that documents the creation of Lode Runner, Prince of Persia, Myst, SimCity, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, and other landmark PC releases from Broderbund. The collection covers Broderbund's founding in 1979 to 1997, when the developer was finally acquired by The Learning Company.
