Mechanical Typewriter

Manufacture Date: May 1922

Serial No. NX23004

This Remington Portable No.1 typewriter once belong to one of the founding faculty members of the School of Journalism, Wilfrid Eggleston, OBE. Eggleston was a prominent journalist, and Director of the Carleton School of Journalism from 1947 to 1966.

This particular model was manufactured in May 1922. Eggleston attended Queen’s University from 1926 to 1928, and immediately started a journalism career at the Lethbridge Herald, where after only one year he became the Ottawa correspondent for the Toronto Star. Bought new or used, there is a chance Eggleston used this typewriter throughout his entire career.

Manufactured in the United States of America (potentially Ilion, New York)
