That was one of the myths about the Hinman Collator.  Steve Smith at
Texas A&M will have a long and detailed article out in a future Studies
in Bibliography on the subject of the Hinman Collator.  It will expose
many of the myths surrounding the machine, some of which, alas, I have
been responsible for spreading.  I can't imagine there has been any
advertising for the Hinman very recently since they are no longer
manufactured.  You may be thinking of Randall McLeod's portable collator
or Carter Hailey's Comet (also a portable).

I don't have a copy of the flyer, but here's a to a brief article by
someone at the University of Houston about the bomber crew connection.
Apparently it's true.

Didn't the idea of the Collator come from Hinman's experience of working
in naval intelligence in World War II? The work of scholars and critics
--and poets-- is not infrequently allied with such activity. The
Department of English at Yale was a well-known seed-bed for intelligence
agents during and after the war. And it's widely accepted in Britain
that the model for James Bond was F. R. Leavis.
