Bring your lunch to the museum for this session on typewriters. Today is Typewriter Day, and it is the anniversary of the 1868 patent for American inventor Christopher Latham Sholes who gave us the QWERTY keyboard. Join Curator Mike Holtzclaw as he discusses the history of the typewriter and shows off a number of examples from the museum’s collection.
