Today is Typewriter Day

Today is Typewriter Day

149 years ago today, on June 23, 1868, the patent for the typewriter was granted to American inventor Christopher Latham Sholes. While many people had been working on different prototypes of typewriters before 1868, Christopher Latham Sholes’ machine was the first one to be commercially marketed. Known as the Sholes and Glidden typewriter or the Remington 1 typewriter, the device could only type uppercase letters. Typewriters revolutionized the world of communications. Letters and correspondences looked more professional, followed a consistent format, and were more legible when typed out on a typewriter compared to handwritten communications that dominated the workplace in the past. In addition to creating an efficient and more organized workspace, the use of typewriters in businesses and governments worldwide meant that typing became a required skill for many jobs. A large percentage of these jobs were administrative in nature and were usually done by women, who were specifically hired for their typing skills – the typewriter played a very important role in opening up workspaces for women.
