One device did survive and is still being used to this day. That is the slide chart [or the wheel chart if circular rather than rectangular]. They were not really affected by the introduction of the electronic calculator and there are several companies which continue to design and sell slide and wheel charts for all kinds of purposes.
In ‘Reinventing the Wheel’ [ISBN 1-56898-596-7] Jessica Helfand claims that wheel charts [she prefers the archaic Latin name of volvelle ] have existed since the Middle Ages. Her book gives a history of wheel charts and images of over one hundred from her own collection. She has donated her collection to Yale University. A catalogue is available online.
Why have slide and wheel charts survived when slide rules haven’t? One reason is that they are about presenting information rather than about calculation. Information which can be read off scales [see the IBM slide chart below] or seen through die cut windows [as with the Kellogg wheel chart above]. Another reason is that they are specialized. There are charts about nuclear radiation, sports, profit and loss, dates, general knowledge and so on. A third reason is that they are often created for advertising or publicity purposes. A possible fourth reason is that they often attractively designed and interesting.
