The Fairchild Graphic Equipment publication More Type In less Time through Automatic Typesetting notes that the Teletypesetter had been "developed and manufactured since 1932 by the designers of the world-famous Teletype communication apparatus until January 1958, when Fairchild Graphic Equipment, a Division of Fairchild Camera and Instrument Corp., assumed manufacture, development, sale and service of Teletypesetter equipment." (p. 2) However, the USPTO database for the trademark registrations for "Teletypesetter" (now expired) specify a date of first use and first use in commerce of Nobember 15, 1928 (that trademark was owned by Teletype Corporation of America, Chicago). The trademarks on Teletypesetter (in US categories 21 and 23) were renewed (2nd renewal) in 1971, but have since been allowed to expire. (Curiously, More Type In less Time... and other Fairchild literature assert that "TTS" was a registered trademark, but the USPTO has no record of this.) Fairchild Teletypesetter Operating Units for Linotype Machines says "since 1933," which is close.
