From the Daily New Canaan:

[Steve] Soboroff has collected 15 typewriters that were owned by famous people, including Ernest Hemingway, Joe DiMaggio, John Lennon, George Bernard Shaw, Tennessee Williams and Jack London. “It’s such a personal connection, and they’re so one of a kind,” he said.

He occasionally loans them to museums to raise money for journalism students, so he doesn’t feel bad about beating out CBS [for Andy Rooney’s typewriter].
