Penman's Journal



The IAMPETH Newsletter has a very rich history of providing quality instruction on fine penmanship. We can trace its lineage back to the Business Educator first published in the late 1800's by the Zanerian College. It would eventually become The Educator.

In approximately 1949, publication of The Educator (Zaner-Bloser) was reportedly coming to an end. Several penmen including R.C. King, Frank A. Krupp, Stephen Ziller, P. L. Zenzen, Oscar Japs and F.O. Anderson met to discuss the possibility of creating a publication that would pick up where The Educator would leave off.  F.O. Anderson, spurred on by support from P.Z. Bloser and E.A. Lupfer of Zaner-Bloser (all founding members of IAMPETH), decided to create The Penman's News-Letter in 1949.
