The American Society of Questioned Document Examiners is the
oldest and largest organization in the world dedicated to the profession of
forensic document examination. The ASQDE traces its roots to 1913, when
Albert S. Osborn initiated a program for the interchange of ideas and
research. In 1942, Mr. Osborn and fourteen other prominent document
examiners formally organized the American Society of Questioned Document
Welcome to the website of the American Society of Questioned Document Examiners. On behalf of the Society, I invite you to tour our website and get an idea of what the ASQDE is all about. You can learn about the history of the Society, our annual meetings, and get contact information for examiners in private practice, as well as our Executive Committee.
Every year our members and invited guests meet for the Society's annual general meeting. At the annual meeting, our attendees present research papers and participate in educational workshops. To maintain membership, each member must regularly present a research paper or make other significant contributions to the annual meeting.
