Helen Ridgely was eager to except modern technology in almost every way, except for the introduction of electricity to Hampton. In addition to being a camera bug and owning automobiles, she began using a typewriter by the 1890s. This Underwood Standard No. 5 was probably the second model she acquired. She typed the manuscript to her second major published work, Historic Graves of Maryland and the District of Columbia (1908), on it.
