This month’s cover features a 1976 photograph entitled “Typewriter” taken in the Bailey Library at Slippery Rock State College, now Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania. The library was built in 1971 and named in honor of Matilda Bailey, a beloved English Department faculty member and author of children’s textbooks. Library facilities were touted in the student newspaper The Rocket in December 1971, including the fact that “ . . . there are two typewriters free for student use on the third floor of the Library near the elevator. With many term papers due, there can be no doubt that these typewriters should receive much use.”
