About this collection

The online collection is a sampling of the S.C. Malone Penmanship Collection (not dated and 1890-1932), including detail images of some of the hand-lettered designs. The complete collection, which is part of Decker Library’s special collections, consists of 98 examples of penmanship created by Samuel Curtis Malone (d. 1938).

 

S.C. Malone, a nationally known master penman, maintained a studio in Baltimore, MD as early as 1888, fulfilling commissions for bookplates, coats of arms, crests, and diplomas. Certificates were created for clients such as the City of Baltimore, University of Maryland, and the B&O Railroad. As a handwriting expert, Malone was often called for court testimony.

Penmanship classes were also offered at his office which was located in four different locations throughout the years on Charles Street: 5 North Charles Street, 9 North Charles Street, 331 North Charles Street, and 323 North Charles Street. A finding aid for the collection is available on the Decker Library website.
