Man with a mission

Ralph Stillwell, Michigan pen collector, member of the Pen Collectors of America (PCA) and personal friend, likes to spend some of his free time teaching children the joys of using fountain pens. His classes include the history of pens and writing and the correct way to use a pen, and each child comes away a little smarter (and all smiles). He is an enthusiastic supporter of the Pens for Kids program, hosted by the PCA, and he has held his classes for children all over the country via pen shows. Ralph frequently teaches in his home territory at public libraries; here he is pictured in a Detroit public school.

  1. Anyone who has watched Ralph sees two things: 1) He loves fountain pens and 2) He loves working with kids. He's fun to watch and has a real way with kids that shows through to both kids and adults.
