This morning, I decided to bring my 1942 Underwood manual typewriter to my office. My Mom got it while she was working for the U.S. government back in the 1960's, and used it for years. I used it myself during part of college, and I thought it would look nice in my office. Little did I know that today is actually National Typewriter Day, the anniversary of the granting of the U.S. patent to Christopher Latham Sholes in 1868. Such a coincidence must be a sign, so I figured I'd better post a photo. Thanks to the Typosphere for the reminder!
