Pursuing the Ampersand

BY MICHAEL HILL
@ VOL 15 ON DEC 06, 2018

Michael Hill is an interdisciplinary social scientist with strong interests in the visual arts. After many years of teaching, research and publication, he received the Distinguished Scholarly Career Award from the American Sociological Association’s Section on the History of Sociology. He is currently a docent in theKrasl Art Center, a part-time artist, and the Associate Director of the Jane Addams Research Center in St. Joseph, Michigan.

"I was intrigued early on by the squiggly little symbol my father made in his handwritten manuscripts to indicate the English conjunction “and.” And, I learned later, it is called an “ampersand.” Most recently, an online typography course rekindled my interest in the origin, uses, and peculiarities of the ampersand as a visual & linguistic device. Did you know, for example, that it was once called the 27th letter of the alphabet? My pursuit of the ampersand has taken me, serendipitously, to bookstores, libraries, archives, art museums, art classes, billboards, and grocery stores. We live in a universe filled with letters and symbols; this is my attempt to better understand one of them." - michael r hill
