typewriter Burridge & Marshman April
Transcript of typewriter Burridge & Marshman April
Feb 22, 1898
Newman R. Marshman was born on April 7, 1847. He lived in New York City all his life. Newman helped Lee Burridge make improvements to the typewriter and invented new parts for the typewriter. Newman did invent the rolling pin with handles. In this area though blacks were not treated the same as whites, so Newman did have some bumps along the way but he obviously got around them and he went on to live a great live. He lived a long live and died at the age of 83 on November 2, 1930 in Bronx County, NY. Just to let you know that Newman probably would not have had this live if the 14th amendment wasn't passed on July 9, 1868.(there isn't much said about Newman, but i did find the basic things you should know about him : full name, birth, inventions, death)
How he affected the typewriter
He and a man named Lee Burridge made improvements to the typewriter that advanced the United States at that time.
They modified so the machine would have a simple mechanism that could be sold at a low price; but such machines have been found in practice to be so slow of operation as to seriously impair their value. The main object of their invention was to produce such a simple and cheap machine that can be operated at a speed approximate to that of the more expensive machines. In the end they made a typewriter that was better quality then the original and it was sold at a cheap price so anyone could buy it.
