Thanks! After researching, I'm not 100% convinced the LUS pen was the inspiration for the Aqua Pen in spite of the nearly identical slogans used for both. Max Goldman and Alex Goldman of the Universal Fountain Pen & Pencil Company, Inc. had applied for patents on an ink making pen as early as December 10, 1957 and the eventual Aqua Pen as far as I can from photos and descriptions is quite a bit different, with the LUS pen using ink pellets instead of a permanent re-usable ink sponge cartridge, for example. I re-read Giovanni's article and would love his comments.
