This typewriter was named after the town where it was produced, Alexis, Illinois. It was invented by James A. Wallace who patented it in 1890. The Alexis Typewriter Company manufactured it. Though the typewriter was originally patented in 1890, and produced shortly thereafter, it was virtually unknown until one was discovered about 15 years ago. Since then a few more have bubbled up but none my way (yet).
