John Hancock

Dean Dillopolis, People Historian

“Put your John Hancock right there!” Ever hear that expression?  It means putting your signature on a piece of paper.  John Hancock is famous for his signature, the big sprawling one at the bottom of the Declaration of Independence.  I guess he figured if he was the first signer, he could take up as much room as possible.  Although, when you are someone who significantly bankrolled the revolution in Boston, you probably deserve a big space for your “John Hancock.”
