This accession consists of a log book, prepared by Arthur Edward Lilley, describing meetings, correspondence, reports, and other events in the history of the attempt to build a large radio telescope by the Cambridge Radio Observatory Committee (CAMROC) and the Northeast Radio Observatory Corporation (NEROC).
