Mission


The mission of the Kaminski Handwriting Collection is to provide a free and public place for people to share and to learn about the many types of handwriting.

Because the long history of handwriting is too great to cover in great detail, the first phase of this project has been to document American handwriting in different periods as well as to identify the changes that occur at key times. The second phase will be to make this material more readily accessible and understandable to the larger public, as well as to educate the public how to read the handwriting on historical manuscripts. This second phase is being launched this spring, 2018, and will continue for a number of years.
