The Hall Braille-writer shown here is serial no. 25 and is only one of two known surviving examples (no. 77 also survives) from the first batch of 100 Hall Braille-writers made. This machine came out of the estate of the son of Theodore C. Leutz. Leutz was a violinist before he lost his eyesight. He was born and lived in America from 1877 until 1954. He was very much involved in helping the blind and I am honored to have his Braille-writer in my collection.
