He was a tragic figure in our history... dedicated, tenacious, but apparently (contextually) very shy guy and not at all into the blowhard self-promotion that was so common then and even more so nowadays (I should know ehhhh....). That compact display is absolutely beautiful and tastefully arranged. Someone(s) put a lot of TLC into that. Thanks to them and thanks for sharing it with us here.    Tom

 

Well... I'm returning to your excellent photodoc to revisit his bio --- with due reverence and celebration of his life!    Tom

Glad you enjoyed Burnham's display, Daniel. The Lowell library/archive team put a lot of work into it. Mr. Burnham is certainly deserving of the recognition.

He wrote it on a Selectric. Of course! I have one. I would never part with it. I do not use it. The computer is the primary keyboard, but the Selectric is not to be discarded.

 

Thanks!

I have one in the basement gathering dust, been wondering what to do with it.
