When the Emerson Typewriter Company (see the
Emerson in the collection) closed its doors, the Woodstock was born. It was quite successful under the management by Sears-Roebuck, which had taken ownership. Alvah Roebuck, president of the company, designed a totally new and different typewriter to replace the Emerson, and it was very successful from its inception in 1919 up through and beyond the Depression. Though there is but one photo of the Mellow 60s Museum's Woodstock, many more will be added.
