The Typewriter Database 19XX Commodore Educator Serial # 031195143 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ian Brumfield: 19XX Commodore Educator Serial # 031195143 I was graciously given this typewriter by Mark Petersen at the 8th annual Antique Typewriter Collector's Meeting in Morgantown, WV, USA. This little machine is in dire need of life saving repair work; it has had a tough life.

The body is primarily made of a gray plastic, and it appears to be a unibody design. The areas that have metal body panels have all sustained interesting impact damage that renders the machine unusable. I suspect that for the most part the body panels are what's interfering with the mechanical operation of the typewriter. Made in Canada.

I've been hunting for typewriters since 2012, but I've loved them for long before that... about 2003. In the short amount of time in which I've started seriously collecting I've amassed a collection of over 65 machines (now specializing in Royals), one of which is parts. At the ripe old age of 19, to boot!

In November of 2013 I participated in National Novel Writing Month and hit a pretty decent 105,991 words; all written on manual machines. I think that this is a new record, but there isn't any official record keeping in the Typewriter Brigade.

I also run The Daily Clipper, which while admittedly abandoned for 2 years is back up and running, soon to bring you articles on all sorts of history. Scheming and planning a website on the same domain.
