May 1st, 1964 the Honeywell Electronic Data Processing Division Bala-Cynwyd office sales team led by Stephen S. Berry (Sales Representative) and H.L. Sweatt (Branch Sales Mgr) submitted their proposal to DuPont Company to upgrade the Treasurer's Department computer system. DuPont had been running an IBM 1401 system but they were looking to upgrade. Initial discussions between the two companies appear to have been about the H-200 computer. After assessing the needs of the Treasurer's Department, Honeywell is shown to suggest that DuPont instead acquire a system comprising of combination of H-800/1800, H-300, and components. For reference Honeywell also included info about the H-200.

This proposal contains pricing and system configuration. It also contains a comparison between the IBM 1401 and the Honeywell B-200.
