From Our Newsletter


The September issue of the DTHS Newsletter includes an article
by John Boylett outlining the results of his research
into an interesting object that has long been displayed
on the desk in Max Schramm's study.

It is an original Odhner Mechanical Calculator.
These machines were manufactured in Sweden between 1935 and 1945.

We would be very interested now in learning where this particular item
might have been used in our district.
Unfortunately nothing was recorded about its history or its donor
when it was collected in the early years of the society.
