Cahill Electric Typewriter
When typewriter historians hear the name Cahill, they immediately associate it with the groundbreaking turn-of-the-century electric typewriter developed by Thaddeus Cahill, based on a Remington 2. Some might also remember that Thaddeus Cahill built the world’s first electromechanical musical instrument, the amazing Telharmonium, a house-sized music producing and transmitting machine. It was the first iPod, except about a million times bigger!
