Thank you very much. The author of "my" essay didn't remember writing it
at all, though I hope he will recall it now that I have sent him a copy.
The handwriting is very interesting. I went to school for a few years
with the nuns in Brookline, Massachusetts, and they tried without any
success to teach me the Palmer Method of handwriting. (Two of us failed
the course, and the other lad was left-handed.) This is quite different
from Palmer handwriting, but it's obviously from the same general idea
of teaching children to write. It's very firm and slopes to the right.
The tall letters are very tall, and the capital letters all have
flourishes. It reminds me very much of my own mother's handwriting--she
grew up in Ireland.

I have a five-page handwritten essay written by one of the Anders Army
cadets, from the Hoover Institution archives. It is undated and has no
title. I need to know how to cite this essay in a bibliography.
Ordinarily I would give the writer's name, followed by "untitled essay,"
Hoover Institution, "circa 1942," and the name of the translator.
But is there a better term than "essay"? I have seen these documents
referred to here as a "testimony." Is that an accepted term?
Thanks - Dan

There was no coercion or any pressure attached to our writing; we were asked to do it as we felt and put down our thoughts as best we could. The work was not marked by our teachers, as I recall. Sadly many did not write anything at all.It is interesting to me how those records at Hoover survived having travelled from Palestine to Sikorski in London and to Stanford.antoni530
