The Herrington was almost as basic as any typewriter could get. Despite its simplicity, it was produced in a beautiful aesthetic of brass and wood. The Herrington was patented in 1884 by George H. Herrington and David G. Millison. It was produced ca.1886 by the McClees-Millison Type-Writer Company of Wichita, Kansas. The Herrington typewriter sold for $5, case inclusive. For markets outside the U.S. it was rebranded as the Universal Simplex.
