A. N. Palmer
Austin Norman Palmer (December 22, 1860 – November 16, 1927) innovated the field of penmanship with the development of the Palmer method of script. He noticed that the Spencerian script was impractical, with many flourishes, especially for businessmen and clerks. So he developed the Palmer method of script, which was simple and had no intricate flourishes.
