Title:
Landon Chronicles (1941-1945): Kenneth on Sending Broadcasts to San Francisco (hour 64, clip 19)
Date:
1941-1945
Description:
In conjunction with the OWI broadcasts, there developed a need to send messages to San Francisco regarding the broadcasts, and the OWI people wanted some sort of simple code that could be typed out for this purpose. Kenneth thought up the idea of having a Thai typewriter and an English typewriter side by side on either end. Someone would type up the words in English on the one typewriter, then read the English and type it off touch-type style on the Thai typewriter as if it were English. (Length 2:01)
