I know this is veering away from Gambit.  Maybe the URLs are useful though.

In my few serious computer-history investigations, I've found that the
primary sources are detailed and correct in a way the secondary sources
aren't.  (In the case of the MIT Lisp Machines, Dan Weinreb -- who founded
Symbolics and wrote a lot of the software -- told me in e-mail that they
never got source debugging.)

You'll need to hunt around for the manuals.  The TI directrories below
are pretty complete, though they describe newer software than the CADR
runs.  And you may want to check that all the key mappings work.
