Edward F. Underhill (1830-1898)

Edward Fitch Underhill was one of the thirty-two men who signed the "Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions" at the Woman's Rights Convention in Seneca Falls, New York, on July 20, 1848. A professional court stenographer, Underhill went on to invent the first method for typewriting, described in his "Handbook of Instruction for the Type-Writer" (1880), which used all ten fingers. But the public continued to prefer the "hunt-and-peck" approach. Underhill later passed the bar and became a lawyer. He also wrote humorous prose and verse.
