Today in History: Mercedes becomes a registered brand name in 1902

Today in History: Mercedes becomes a registered brand name in 1902

On this day in 1902, German automobile manufacturer Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft (DMG) registered “Mercedes” as a brand name (gaining full legal protection in September). The name was born out of a partnership between DMG founder, Gottlieb Daimler, and Austrian diplomat, Emil Jellinek, who ran a profitable business selling luxury cars. Jellinek had ordered cars from Daimler in the late 1890s and sold them to high society customers. But he also used them in racing events, entering them using the pseudonym “Mercedes,” the name of his elder daughter. In 1900, Jellinek entered an agreement with DMG to sell a new line of 4-cylinder automobiles suggesting they be called Mercedes. The first Mercedes was delivered in December of 1900: it had 35 hp, featured a steel chassis with a long wheelbase, an electric ignition system and a speed of 53 mph/85 kmh – the birth of the first modern automobile. The new car amazed the automobile world. Sales went through the roof and the Mercedes era had begun.

Today is Typewriter Day

Today is Typewriter Day

On this day in 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.

Today in History: The 33 RPM LP was introduced in 1948

On this day in 1948, Columbia Records introduced the 33 1/3 rpm microgroove record album. In many ways this invention gave birth to the modern pop album. Of course, all kinds of albums were (and still are) released as vinyl records, but pop albums were the first to be structured around the format. The length, number and order of songs were designed around the 22 minute per side limitation.

Today in History: Andy Warhol’s First Exhibit in 1952

History: Andy Warhol’s First Exhibit in 1952

On this day in 1952, a young artist named Andy Warhol celebrated the first show of his artwork in New York. The co-founder of “Pop Art” exhibited a series of drawings that made reference to the works of the American writer, Truman Capote. Warhol had studied at the Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh before moving to New York in 1950. His studio, commonly known as “The Factory,” was a famous meeting place for New York artists, intellectuals and celebrities. From the mid-1960s on, Warhol no longer painted much himself. He produced a number of underground films, including “Chelsea Girls” (1966) and “Trash” (1970) and even managed a punk rock band, The Velvet Underground. Warhol passed away in Manhatten on February 22, 1987.
