Scott Connors to speak on Vintage Typewriters in the Digital Age
Scott Connors will give a talk on his passion, Vintage Typewriters in the Digital Age, on Sunday, May 1, at 2:00 p.m.
He is owner and operator of Stephentown Typewriter Co. and will show some vintage machines and tell history of the typewriter and all aspects of it. This Stephentown Historical Society program meeting will be held at the Stephentown Heritage Center, 4 Staples Road, Stephentown, New York.
The program is free and the building is handicapped accessible. For directions, telephone (518) 733-0010.
Connors is an author, musician and classic car collector, as well as avid typewriter enthusiast.
He first came to be fascinated by typewriters as a writer. The author of two published novels, he had a desire to write on a typewriter. He bought a “backup” machine in case the first one broke. On finding these machines rarely break, he fixed up the backup machine and sold it, thus beginning his journey into typewriters. He began to specialize in machines from the 1920s through the 1950s. He searched out old typewriter repair manuals and old typewriter tools and learned some “trade secrets” from a small cadre of old repairmen. He has been able to preserve beloved typewriters for others, returning them to working order and their former glory while keeping them in their original state.
