Passengers

I'm stepping down as department chair after nine years of service. It was time. The main problem this creates is that I now must move out of the spacious chair's office into one half as big! As a result, some typewriters are coming home. I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the passengers who've been hitching rides with me recently.

  1. If I was closer, I'd love to store that VariTyper for you.

    1. It may go on sale eventually ... I have to trim my collection a bit.

  2. Easy on the brakes - imagine one of those in emergency stop mode!

    1. Me too ... and it's super-rare. Unfortunately, it's in need of very serious restoration.

  5. I'm sure you had a highly successful 9 years. Is Department Chair the same as Division Chair?

    1. No, I was just in charge of administering the philosophy department, one department within Xavier's College of Arts and Sciences.

    1. I'm happy to report that the incoming chair is a typewriter lover too, and has about five of them in his office right now.

  7. Fine looking passengers. I've often wondered what you would do with all your typewriters if you ever left that huge office.

  8. Where is the safety belt? Quiet passengers, no fee.
