I bought my first typewriter in 1974 (a used 1940s Royal) as a college freshman, and my first new typewriter a couple of years later (a 197X Smith-Corona 2200) as my career goal settled into journalism. We used typewriters in newspaper work until the early 1980s, when computers took over the world of communications. My typewriters went away, My career evolved into public relations and marketing communications, but a nostalgic longing for typewriters remained. It got quenched a bit a few years ago when my older sister gave me custody of her 1967 Olympia SM-9, which she received as a high school graduation present from our parents in 1969. But I wanted to reconnect with my personal typewriter past, so I eventually obtained a 1946 Royal Quiet DeLuxe and a Smith-Corona 2200. That led me into some estate sales and the world of eBay, where other treasures awaited discovery.
