Happy Birthday John Hancock!John Hancock, the prominent statesman and patriot, was the first to sign the Declaration of Independence. As he signed on a blank space, his script is the “most flamboyant and easily recognizable” of all the names. His beautiful signature or “John-Hancock” has become synonymous for signing one’s name. With pen in hand, it is appropriate that we honor handwriting on Mr. Hancock’s birthday by designating today as National Handwriting Day!
