Mycologist's Handwriting Samples
Among the mycology-related collections in Special Collections are several binders full of handwriting samples. The actual content of the sample varies widely. Some samples are a lone signature, while others feature several samples of text cut out and arranged on the page. Many American mycologists and plant pathologists are represented, including: H. Ravenel, C.H. Peck, J.B. Ellis, C.L. Shear, G.L. Zundel, G. W. Carver, E.E. Morse, W.H. Long, E.K. Cash, A.G. Johnson, A.E. Jenkins.
We've identified the people behind 1,099 of the handwriting samples. In addition to the famous writers featured in the exhibit, we'll keep adding to the Mycology Handwriting Samples collection for you to enjoy.
