Wanted: Edison Mimeograph Typewriter
Contrary to what some may believe, Thomas A. Edison had nothing to do with the invention of the Edison typewriter. It was named as such because it was intended to work in conjunction with the Edison mimeograph. That is why the correct, full name for this machine is the "Edison Mimeograph Typewriter." There were three different models of the Edison produced, Nos.1, 2 and 3, and all were sold by the A.B. Dick Company of Chicago, Illinois.
Dr. W.G. Todd of Kansas City, KS produced a modified version which he referred to as the Improved Mimeograph Typewriter for the Blind.
