The “Marking the Mark” exhibit opening Friday at the U.S. National Archives in Washington, D.C. includes more than 100 original signatures by the famous and infamous and is the result of a wide search by curators for signatures representing important names and events in history.

The exhibit proved to be a good way to find interesting stories, said chief curator Jennifer Johnson. For example, the exhibit depicts the stories behind John Hancock’s flourishing signature as well as the basketball signed by Duke University men’s team when they won the 2001 NCAA championship.
