Term: Invention of the Typewriter (Historic Marker Erected 1956)


N. 4th and W. State sts. At 318 State Street, Milwaukee, Milwaukee County

Approximately 300 feet northeast of here, C. Latham Sholes per­fected the first practical typewriter in September 1869. Here he worked during the summer with Carlos Glidden, Samuel W. Soule, and Matthias Schwalbach in the machine shop of C. F. Kleinsteuber. During the next six years, money for the further development of the typewriter was advanced by James Densmore, who later gained the controlling interest and sold it to E. Remington and Sons of Ilion, N.Y.
