The Typewriter Trail

The New England editor represented in Benton’s painting might be using a pen, but he would have typed final copy for the newspaper. Follow our Typewriter Trail to explore ideas around how news travels, the typewriter as innovation, and the use of the typewriter by contemporaries Dr. Seuss and Margaret Mead.
