Dennis Nilsen’s Typewriter Used To Type His Early Memoirs

Dennis Nilsen’s Typewriter Used To Type His Early Memoirs

Dennis Nilsen owned 5 typewriters between 1991 and 2018. Of those, two of them were thrown 
away in the prison and three were handed out. This one is the first. It was given to him by Central 
TV following their controversial interview with him in 1991 and he used it to write his early 
memoirs as well as most of his correspondences between then and the mid nineties when he 
replaced it with a Lettera 25.
This Olympia typewriter is referred to in History of a Drowning Boy (DN’s autobiography) on page 242:
“Only one good thing came out of the Central TV interview fiasco and it was that Mike 
Morley sent me a manual typewriter that he’d found lying around in a cupboard at the 
office. They no longer used them – being into word processing PCs by then – and I was 
thankful for this kind gift.”
The item is also featured in the colour plates section of the autobiography.
