I.T.A.M. meets School Assignment, maybe


(Presented above is an unedited typecast – not a salute to the typewriter’s lack of spell check, but to the poor merits of the typist.)


  1. A noble goal and I hope you find success in it this year!

  2. Yes, of course you can do it! The good old library will be your friend, and the reference librarian will weep tears of joy when you ask him or her for advice.

    "Age of the lower case i" -- I love that.

  3. deek - Noble, maybe; crazy? More likely.

    Richard P - I'll be spending a bit of time in the library, and I'm sure the research librarian will have to lean upon the returns desk to support themself when a school student comes in and wants help.
    My only real concern, though, is that some of the resources just won't be in books - some of the facts won't be up to date in print resources. But I can pick and chose with the actual assignment - a novel study, I think, would be perfectly suited to the library and won't be reliant on the information superhighway that I'm currently a slave to. I'll see how it goes.

  4. I always write the draft for my german essays on my Continental 340, and copy them by hand afterwards.

    Good luck!

    1. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one writing drafts on typewriters and then laboriously copying them out again! But I may well be the only one attempting to do it without any computer intervention!

  5. Yeeha! Reading about this almost makes me wish I could go back to school. Almost... ;-) Good luck! I'm very curious to find out if it worked out for you (and if you will do this more often).
