Vintage education technology. At Time4Learning , we appreciate the history of educational technology & enjoy viewing previous "revolutions" in educational technology. We live at the cutting edge of technology-mediated education and live amidst slide projectors, mimeograph machines, and even an old slate. Did you use these technologies, were they revolutionary? PS. I'm looking for a teacher gradebook typical until around the turn of the century, have one?

1961 Mimeograph Machine by Standard Rocket
Secondly, there was a big box and inside was a 1961 Standard Rocket mimeograph machine with a few dozen Copy-rite Spirit Master Units and two standard wicks (I'm not entirely sure what they are). The machine is hand cranked and appears to be in working order.
The mimeograph masters seem a little aged so I'm not sure that they'll work.
About the smell. Yes, the smell of the freshly printed mimeographs is of course the most important thing. The fact is that I have bad cold today and I can't tell if the masters have the right smell or not. Stay tuned.
BTW, does anyone know what gave them that fantastic smell and how I could reproduce it?
