• Martin Tytell and the End of an Era

    A typewriter legend, Martin Tytell, died Thursday. He was 94.

    You have to read the article in the NY Times. I'm thinking some biographer needs to write this man's life.

    1. How sad. I recently read an article about him by Ian Frazier from 11 years back:
      - and it was inspiring.

      I like to think that his work contributed to his longevity.

    2. :'-(

    3. It is very sad to hear of Tytell's passing. I'd read an article about him a while back:


      and always harbored the fantasy of someday meeting him. Alas.

      By the way, I have Zelda's twin sister. Her name is Cassandra. They are beauties, aren't they?

    4. I absolutely did not realize I was repeating information. Bad on me.

    5. I truly think his story would make a fascinating read (or even a movie). If only I was a terribly clever and successful biographer, I'd jump at the task.

    6. Bummer. I could use a repairman, too. Someone gave me a Smith Corona Galaxy and the "r" key has fallen off. Epoxy won't hold. I wonder if he could solder it back on.
