Christopher Latham Sholes(1819-1890)
Sholes was a U.S. mechanical engineer who invented the first practical modern typewriter, patented in 1868. Sholes invented the typewriter with partners S. W. Soule and G. Glidden, that was manufactured (by Remington Arms Company) in 1873. He was born February 14, 1819 in Mooresburg, Pennsylvania, and died on February 17, 1890 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

In 1829, William Austin Burt patented a machine called the "Typowriter" which, in common with many other early machines, is listed as the "first typewriter." The first commercially successful typewriter was invented by Christopher Latham Sholes, Carlos Lidden and Samuel W. Soule in 1867.

There were many different attempts to produce a mechanical writing machine, but the first one to be commercially successful was invented by Christopher Latham Sholes (1819-1890).

He was an American engineer who, together with SW Soule and G Glidden, invented the first typewriter that was later commercially manufactured by Remington, then a sewing machine company.
Their first machine was made in 1866, but the keys jammed easily. To solve this problem they followed the suggestion of a business colleague, James Densmore, who suggested separating the more common letters so that people would have to type more slowly. This was how, in 1868, our QWERTY keyboard originated.
