Who We Are

The Society of Inkwell Collectors (SOIC) was founded in 1981 by Vince McGraw.

It continues to be dedicated to:

  • the establishment and enhancement of collecting inkwells and writing accessories as a hobby,
  • the study of inkwell design and manufacture across periods and materials, and
  • the scholarly study of the role of inkwells and writing accessories in history.

The SOIC is an international organization that provides its members with an opportunity to meet, communicate, and share information with inkwell collectors worldwide.

The SOIC is led by an unpaid Board of Directors and staffed by other dedicated volunteers, that make up our Leadership Team.
