        Hey everyone. I probably have a few items I could contribute, but I don't
        really have a way of getting the stuff to the museum. Anyone got wheels to
        come pick up stuff and bring to NJ?

          Kelly,

          Someone donated an immaculately maintained wide carriage Selectric a couple
          months ago. It even includes the official IBM dust cover! It's in one of our
          museum rooms waiting for another ad agency to call. A second one couldn't
          hurt as I think these are the most likely rental we have. Can you bring it to
          InfoAge on your next trip?

          Jim

                  Boyd,

                  I agree it would be a nice addition sitting next to the keypunch. Can you

                  Jim
