Slocum Typewriter


The Slocum typewriter was patented on February 9, 1886 by its inventor, William Henry Slocum, a court stenographer from Buffalo, New York. Measuring just 13" long by 10" wide by 6" tall, the Slocum had a much lower profile than other typewriters of the era, like the Sholes & Glidden, Hammond and Caligraph. but its stature is reminiscent of the Travis.
