I'm certainly one of the least qualified to guess on these, but:
Vonnegut's looks like some type of Olivetti to me.
As does Rushdie's. His looks (to my old eyes) like an Underwood-Olivetti, poorly treated.
But regardless - thanks for all the pics! Love it!
This post never seemed to end - massive! Mayröcker: yes, Hermes Baby.
My God, what a crop of fantastic photos! I enjoyed them all, even though I don't know who the writers are in some cases.
Taylor Caldwell is working on a Remington - you can tell by the downturned carriage return lever.
That's a Hermes 9 that Marcuse is typing on.
Amazing that Barthelme (with a wonderful ironic smile) is using such an old typewriter, with return lever on the right (LC Smith?).
The margin stop on Schlesinger's machine looks like a Smith-Corona product to me.
Huxley's typewriter is a Remington - you can tell from the folding tip of the return lever. My guess is a Streamliner.
Good stuff for my "Writers and their Typewriters" page!
Taylor Caldwell's typewriter is not a 1948 Royal. The machine is a Remington Rand 17 or KMC because the handle on the return lever is downward. All Royal Standard machines the handle is facing upward.
Frederick Manfred has a Remington KMC or 17.
Harry Hopkins is working on a prewar Olympia.
Very cool! Some of them look like they were taken by surprise.
Here's my list of guesses:
-Aldous Huxley-Remington Streamline series
-Beryl Cooke-Underwood Universal
-Donald Barthelme-Remington Standard 7?
-E.R. Brathwaite-Lettera 32?
-Frederick Manfred-Remington Super Riter?
-Georges Simenon-Royal KMM
-Lowell Sherman-Underwood Standard
-Marie Windstedt-Smith Corona Sterling/Super/Silent
-Togo-Royal No. 10
Those are some great photos! I do not know enough to guess at the ones you do not know.
I would guess that Marie Winstedt is using a Remington Quiet-Riter. The nameplate appears to have some sort of relief and it is centred, unlike Smith Coronas.
Marcuse is typing in a Hermes 9... I've got one, oddly enough.
