While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Underwood Student on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Underwood Serial Number page and the Underwood Student By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
