Historic men with the pens

The first one to come to mind was the peace treaty by President Ronald
Reagan and General Secretary Gorbachev after the famous “Tear down this wall”
speech. I haven’t been able to discover what type of pen; it looks like a
fountain pen maybe. Gorbachev’s pen is on display at the Reagan Museum.  Just for fun I attached the words that Regan’s advisors told him not to say.

“General Secretary
Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and
Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate! Mr.

reagon at the wall

Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”

Next famous figure I thought about was Abraham Lincoln.
I found this cool YouTube video of the Lincoln Museum and it talks about
Lincoln still using a Goose Quill to write with every now and then.


Another famous person was Albert Einstein. I found this
picture of him receiving his U.S. Citizenship in the 1940’s and in his pocket
is a fountain pen that the Fountain Pen Network gentlemen say is a Pelikan 100N. It
is said that he used it for many years and that it is in his Museum somewhere.

Strange hot selling pen of the past belongs to Thomas Edison.
He invented between 1872 and 1876 an electric pen which he charged $35.00
dollar for. It was invented to a copy signature for a busy business man, in repeat

It was difficult to find fascinating Pen users. I will
keep looking, it was fun.


About lovingspens

I have worked with wood for the past 60 years. This year I started turning pens on a lathe. I use local deer, elk and antelope antlers/horns. Laminate woods, hard woods and inlays to create a great exesitive pen. The arcylic pens are fun, exciting and hard to choose just one. My other hobbies are rock hounding, photography and traveling. As a retired firefighter I have pride myself in service.
