“I attended Princeton University from 1971 to 1973 as an English major. We were required to write a typed Senior Thesis of approximately 100 pages. “Professor Ludwig, was notorious for refusing to accept papers typed on Eatons Erasable Paper, a staple for graduate students. He would return such documents for resubmission (100 pages!) and deem them ‘late’ besides. “ We quickly learned to submit a photocopy of our documents that had been typed on Eatons. And thus Princeton taught us to be problem solvers.” --Conrad Person wrote up his experience for us.
Photo at Top: EMMA LAZARUS’ poem was inscribed at the base of the Statue of Liberty. Its most moving lines, embracing immigrants, wrap around the poster:
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” Passersby at Philly Typewriter write thoughts on the red, white and blue Royal 1960 typewriter--the only model with this patriotic palette ever manufactured. Here, Imogene Parker, 6, types for the first time. ________________________________
