ABOUT







Platt Rogers Spencer

Platt Rogers Spencer (b. East Fishkill, NY, 1800, d. Geneva, OH, 1864) created what would become the most widely accepted and prized cursive writing method used in business, now known as "Spencerian writing". As an outspoken supporter of American business education, his influence insured that by the late 1800s business education in America included some courses on penmanship. He taught at the Bryant&Stratton Business College in New York. His son was Lyman P. Spencer. Lyman's book, New Spencerian Compendium of Penmanship (1879) can be considered as an extension of the work of Platt Rogers Spencer.
