Mon­u­ment to Christo­pher Latham Sholes

Milwaukee Magazine - - Culture -

Per­haps no in­ven­tor did more than Mil­wau­kee’s own Christo­pher Latham Sholes to en­gi­neer the modern type­writer. Among other in­no­va­tions, Sholes de­signed the QWERTY key­board lay­out that we (for the most part) still use. In honor of the state rep, news­pa­per edi­tor and Lin­coln ap­pointee, who died in 1890, a pale mon­u­ment watches over his grave on the western end of the mas­sive and wind­ing For­est Home Ceme­tery (2405 W. For­est Home Ave.).
