Two sons with famous family names were responsible for this monumental typewriter that originally appeared on the market in 1896 as the Remington-Sholes. Indeed, the inventor was Zalman Sholes, son of Christopher Latham Sholes, and the manager was Franklin Remington, son of Remington & Sons, who built the first Sholes & Glidden typewriters.
The Remington Typewriter Company however, was not amused with the business spirit of the sons with the famous names. The company sued and in 1901 Sholes and Remington were forced to change the name of their company to Fay-Sholes (Charles Fay was the company's president).
