As I am sure many of you know, January 23 is National Handwriting Day. The Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association created this day to “alert the public to the importance of handwriting….(and) is a chance for all of us to reexplore the purity and power of handwriting.”
In recognition of this day, we are highlighting some nice handwriting samples from early (1852-1896) Salt Lake County records.
It is also National Pie Day, and today is the birthday of Dorothy G. Page, considered the “Mother” of the Iditarod Dog Sled Race in Alaska.
