There are some pictures of the meeting in the photo album on the website. John Roede gave a great presentation on the Franklin Pen Company of Philadelphia. His research included a lot of information on the families involved including some gathered from interviews of surviving descendents. John brought along examples of Franklin pens from various periods of the company’s history including eyedropper, plunger and lever filling pens.
Afterwards there was plenty of show & tell with plenty of both vintage and modern pens to play with. With nearly 20 people in attendance the conference table was full but the room was still comfortable.
