Notes for George Canfield Blickensderfer
Blickensderfer typewriters, manufactured by the Blickensderfer Manufacturing Company of Stamford, CT, boasted many modern features, such as replaceable type elements (later copied by IBM in their well-known Selectric series of typewriters) and a "scientific" keyboard, which was an attempt to improve upon the efficiency of the "QWERTY" keyboard arrangement.
