Charles Clark Sholes invented the typewriter, which was the size of a sewing machine, in 1866. He patented it two years later and introduced it to the public through E. Remington and Sons. Its lettered keys are arranged in four rows, and each type-carrier is launched as its key is struck. -- "The Typewriter Timeline", The Inteligencer (Doylestown, Pennsylvania), February 22, 2004, p.D7.
Mr. Charles Clark Sholes, who was a brother of Mr. Christopher Latham Sholes, died at Kenosha, Wisconsin, on October 5, 1867, as I mentioned before. Mr. Charles Clark Sholes could never introduce his typewriter to E. Remington and Sons in 1868, since he never invented the typewriter.
