Visiting Ottmar Mergenthaler’s Gravesite

I wasn’t able to be in the print shop last Saturday because of several days at a meeting west of Baltimore. Sitting in the hotel I realized we were only 15 minutes from the grave of the inventor of the Linotype. I had planned the visit as part of another trip to Inner Harbor, but didn’t have time to make it to the cemetery. With the help of staff I was able to quickly find it and also found it adorned by a “Happy Birthday” piece of linotype.
