    I took typing lessons one summer during high school which was the early 1970s (I proudly earned my high school diploma in 1976!). At home, I borrowed my Dad's typewriter to write my school papers. It was a manual Smith Corona probably bought in the early 50s. I think my Dad use to say that he typed his PhD thesis on it. For high school graduation, Grandma gave me an electric typewriter and since then, I went from electric typewriters onto word processors and computers. A few years ago, I dug up my old typewriter and brought it into the office as one of the cornerstones of my educational technology collection.

    This past year, I added one more typewriter to the collection in the office, an Underwood.

    All this is curated and collected in our office. Fro more info, thhp://www.retroedtech.com
