About Us...

The Friends of Dard Hunter is an organization in the United States that connects, encourages, and educates anyone interested in hand papermaking. It was founded in 1981 to preserve the collection of books, papers, equipment, and artifacts from all over the world that Dard Hunter collected in his decades of research on hand papermaking. This collection is irreplaceable since he traveled before the devastation of World War II; it found a permanent home at the Robert C. Williams Paper Museum in Atlanta, Ga. in 1992. Support for this collection is one of the primary goals of the Friends.
