The Varieties and Complexities of American Handwriting and Penmanship: Library Hand

Contact information

As an independent researcher in American handwriting, I am continually working to gather manuscripts and primary documents that will allow for a deeper and more nuanced understanding of this complex, vast, and under-researched topic. 

Please feel free to contact me at to share your manuscript material, insights, comments, and corrections. I am doing some additional work in lexicography and linguistics, though this is mostly transcription work. If you have insights in those areas, please consider sharing them. For every sentence and word written, there is always another left out, another idea waiting to be expressed that is an improvement.
