“Obscure Historical Matter”

An item from the Jefferson [Wisconsin] Banner, November 8, 1906:

New Use for the Phonograph

It is announced that a feature of the new correspondence school opened by the University of Wisconsin will be the use of the phonograph. Professors will read lectures into phonographs, and the records will be sent to distant students. The innovation will be first tried in German to overcome the pronunciation of difficult sounds.

[This was obviously a Wisconsin Extension press release; it also appeared in the Superior Telegram.]
