A Little About Me and This

This blog is all about paper and the people who love it. I’m guessing that’s you (it’s me, too)!

My hope is for this blog to create a kind of community; a meeting place for paper enthusiasts from every corner of interest, be it science or art, industry or history.

    Hi Genevieve, came across your Blog by a happy accident. I almost attended Syracuse in 1982 to do a post doc, but decided to marry and stay in UK instead.

    Did you know that today (May 20), is the anniversary of the birth of Thomas Bonsar Crompton, (1792 – 1858), inventor of the continuous drying of paper. He is buried here in my home town of Farnworth, UK.

    I look forward to following you.

    Genevieve, it’s hard to imagine our paths haven’t crossed before. We were headed to the Friends conference in OH when Dad’s (Arnold Grummer) health prevented it. Thanks for the beautiful blog, I also look forward to following you.

    Hi Genevieve, I was randomly in Syracuse the other day and it made me wonder what you are up to. Awesome things obviously! I’m a printmaker and a paper lover as well! I would love to reconnect with you! Much luck on your path 🙂
