Mildred Budny — Her Page

We open a Page about our Director, Mildred Budny

Logo of the Research Group on Manuscript Evidence in Monochrome VersionLogo of the Research Group on Manuscript Evidence (colour version)This approach corresponds with a new development for our website, with Interviews and Pages to showcase the research, interests, and activities of the People involved in the Research Group on Manuscript [and Other] Evidence. The expanding mission, focused upon manuscripts as well as other forms of evidence, is described on our HomePage.

First came the Interview with Our Layout & Font Designer, Dr. Leslie J. French (6 October 2016, developed from an initial conversation in September 2015, with continuing discussions leading to the completed form); and the Page for our Trustee Adelaide Bennett Hagens (27 September 2016).

Soon came the broadcast (on 12 October 2016) of the Radio Interview (recorded in May 2016) with our Director for The Library Café, hosted by our Associate Thomas Hill. With illustrations, a post on our website describes the background and foreground for that Visit to the Library Café.

Now comes Mildred Budny’s Page or At-Home Page. You Are Here. Welcome.

You could hold your very own copy, now that the Research Group on Manuscript Evidence has been given the distribution of the publication, and we, as a nonprofit educational organization with minimum overheads, may give a special Promotional Offer.

In case you were wondering, with the transfer of the distribution to us, the principal person to carry out its tasks is Guess Who!


Other Interests

mbd logoSome of her other activities can be glimpsed, for example, in other venues.

You might wish to visit her Facebook Page for her Jewelry Designs and her Photography of subjects other than manuscripts:

Milly Budny Designs
Behind the Camera: Photography by Mildred Budny.

And follow her on Twitter, on various subjects as arise:


For example, did you know she founded her own jewelry design business, ‘Milly Budny Designs’, that she sometimes performs as a Puppeteer and writes or edits scripts for Puppet Shows, and that she writes Animal Stories to illustrate and enliven her jewelry creations? She confesses to being partial to “Cute Critters” (gathered as #cutecritters).  Some of them wear the jewelry and ensembles which she has created especially for them.


Her Blog / Our Blog about “Manuscript Studies”

M for ‘Manus’ (‘Hand’)

Wouldn’t you guess that those stories sometimes have puns? Could you tell that, after reading some of her blogposts for our website under the sober title of Manuscript Studies? A glance at some of their own titles may reveal the talent or taste for puns. Have a look at the Blog’s Contents List.


Watch This Space

Now that this Page begins to take shape, we will add more features to it, exploring more of the range, accomplishments, and aims of one of our principal resources, in the form of our energetic and visionary Director.
