If you can find the tapes, I suggest contacting the Computer History Museum <http://www.computerhistory.org/>. If they are DECtapes there's a good chance they will still be readable, as that is a robust format. Even IBM 9-track tapes might be mostly readable. I wouldn't wait too long, as the tapes will continue to degrade.
