Also the young field of Digital Humanities has a history. I just came across this paper on the history of digital humanities in the Netherlands. Interesting -- although I believe that humanities computing in the Netherlands already starts with the development of the Eindhoven corpus in the 1960s by Uit den Boogaart. The Netherlands was definitely at the forefront with this kind of data collections and their use in the field of 'alpha-informatics', as humanities computing was called in Dutch at the time.
