From The Santa Fe New Mexican:
Dec. 28, 1962: LOS ANGELES — An automatic typesetting system, described as the fourth fundamental step in the history of written communication, has been successfully used at the Los Angeles Times since the beginning of the month. The system is built around an electronic computer manufactured by the Radio Corporation of America and enables news or advertising copy to be processed automatically from the writer’s typewriter until it is set into type. It automatically provides editing changes and corrections, divides copy into lines of column width and even decides where split words are to be hyphenated.
Dec. 28, 1987: While children gloat over their Baby Heather dolls and dinosaurs, the Museum of New Mexico system also is tallying up its holiday haul. The end of the year is a popular time for museums to receive donations of art and artifacts, curator of contemporary art Susan Benforado said.
A certain amount of glory is involved in making a donation. Each piece, when it is exhibited, has a display card that indicates who donated the piece. Living artists’ reputations can be enhanced if their work is accepted as a donation. Of course, there is also the tax benefit involved in giving. Within the last two days, the Museum of International Folk Art received almost $100,000 worth of donations.
