ADVANCE S IN THE FORENSI C ANALYSIS AND DATING OF WRITING INK By RICHARD L. I would like to take this opportunity thank my wife, Diane, for her love and support and for encouraging me to do something useful in my retirement. She is the one who had to tolerate my moods during the writing of this book. Actual laboratory procedures for examining and dating inks and other related substances are described, as well as the forensic applications of these techniques in criminal and civil litigations.

Medical malpractice, altered wills, divorces, wrongful terminations, insurance fraud, sexual harassment, copyrights, labor-management disputes, and legal malpractice are all situations that routinely require the dating of documents.

The reasons these examinations have become so important is simple-they provide conclusive proof of fraud, when it exists-and a strong case for authenticity, when there is no evidence of fraud. You can write a book review and share your experiences. Ink dating techniques have been instrumental in resolving many headline criminal investigations, such as the investigations of former Vice President Spiro Agnew; the Howard Hughes (Mormon Will); the mass murderer, Juan Corona; and Watergate.
