The Collection of Zanerian Proofs and Correspondence of Deceased Master Penman Coats Brown!


The program will feature a slideshow of the incredible work of Master Penman Coats Brown, who was a Friends of the Alphabet Member. His collection of Zanerian Proofs and five binders of correspondence dating back to the 1920’s, which includes envelopes, name cards, and letters that he had received from many students of other schools of Business Writing, will be displayed. Included are the names of Zaner, Bloser, Tamblyn, Palmer…it is an INCREDIBLE collection of Spencerian, and business writing. It was donated to FOTA after his death - and was “re-discovered” in our library during inventory. The binders will be on display.
