Manson H. Whitlock in the news

Manson H. Whitlock, ninety-six-year-old typewriter repairman, has suspended business while he attends to a medical problem. Says Mr. Whitlock of his shop, “It isn’t closed. It’s temporarily not open.” I like that distinction. Get well soon, sir.

In 2010, the Yale Daily News ran an interview with Mr. Whitlock. It makes for delightful reading.
