    Abstract

    Handwriting exemplars of Hispanic writers, who were born in a Latin American country and who now reside in the southeastern United States, were examined to discern class characteristics. Embellishments, pen-lifts, and variety of letter forms and writing movements were common features found in the handwriting of Hispanics. Although Hispanic writing reflected a “foreign” influence, determination as to the writer's country of origin was not possible.
