Backspace Does Not Erase: Learn How Typewriters Lead Us to the Computer Age

Want to try out a vintage typewriter and get a sense of what keyboards were like before computer keyboards? Can you type on a manual typewriter faster than you can tap out a message on your device? Experience how the keyboards felt and sounded before the machine was ever connected to electricity. See if you can identify some common keys on keyboards of today that were not on earlier models. Visit Computer Museum of America on Saturday, January 29th from 1:00 - 3:00 PM and try out a few units and meet typewriter subject matter expert Tom Rehkopf.
