1961 News Wednesdays: IBM Introduces Selectric Typewriter


The Selectric was quite the innovation in typewriters.

As they said on Mad Men when one secretary was showing a new girl The typewriter “Don’t be overwhelmed by all the technology, the men who designed it made it simple enough for a woman”.
