HEY! LOOK WHAT I FOUND burried DEEP in the bowels of the University of Washigton Libraries Digital Collection. A picture of DR. AUGUST DVORAK (???!)
Although I'm not 100% sure it's him, the following clues suggest that it IS him: 1) CHECK OUT THE KEYBOARD LAYOUT ON THE BLACKBOARD!!! 2) The photo is from November 14th, 1932 which is the same year his famous report on typing was finished (perhaps this photo was taken for a newspaper article about it???) 3) according to the notes for the photograph, on the sleeve is a handwritten note that reads "D. Dvorak Class Etc., U of W 11/14/32"
I've emailed the Museum of History & Industry in Seattle (who own the photograph) for permission to post it here on the website and I'm going to go ahead and use this man as the referenece for my DVORAK portrait. WOO!!!

Hi its Zeeshan, i was recently going through Dvorak's keyboard search that made me land here.
I've found some interesting facts about Dvorak's layout and thought to share with the rest, you can find them out on the Blog(etechmag) where I found them in comprehensive form.
