Where was christopher scholes when he invented the typewriter?
Perhaps Henry Mill, who patented the first typewriter in 1714. There are other people that people claim as the inventor, but this is the earliest claim that I can find. The first QUERTY typewriter keyboard was invented in 1873 by Christopher Sholes, one of the many people who were part of inventing the typewriter in its current form.
Christopher Latham Sholes (1819-1890) invented the typewriter in 1867. Sholes was a U.S. mechanical engineer who invented the first practical modern typewriter, patented in 1868. Sholes invented the typewriter with partners S. W. Soule and G. Glidden, that was manufactured (by Remington Arms Company) in 1873. He was born February 14, 1819 in Mooresburg, Pennsylvania, and died on February 17, 1890 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
