This month in history (92 years ago)

Russell A. Thornquist included in his 1920-23 U-M student scrapbook a football-shaped printed U-M football season schedule, from O.D. Morrill, 17 Nickels Arcade. The ad proclaimed, “A student without a typewriter is badly handicapped these days when most college work must be typed to bring the best marks. For as little as $5 a month you can now purchase a high grade typewriter from O.D. Morrill.” —  From Bentley Historical Library collections
