Underwood Portable Typewriter Poster
The Underwood typewriter is the creation of German-American inventor Franz X. Wagner. The name 'Underwood' comes from John T. Underwood, an entrepreneur who bought the company early in its history. The Underwood family was already a successful manufacturer of ribbons and carbon paper. It's said that when Remington decided to produce its own line of ribbons and carbon paper, Underwood responded, 'All right, then, we'll just build our own typewriter!'
