Newport Symphony Pen Market

The David Ogden Stiers Pen Collection

David Ogden Stiers was known for his acting in M*A*S*H, in movies and television, and for his voice characters for Disney. At Julliard he was part of John Houseman’s acting group but often found his way to the music director’s class. David was passionate about music and the Oregon Coast. He helped fund and support the Newport Symphony in many ways, and was its resident conductor for many years. Throughout his career as an actor and guest conductor, he generously signed hundreds of autographs. In the process he became a collector of fine writing instruments. Upon his passing, he bequeathed his fountain pen collection to the Newport Symphony that their sale may provide his continuing financial support.

The NSO is now making his collection available to its supporters, his fans, and pen collectors for purchase. His collection includes pens he used and never used pens from well known pen manufactures such as Bexley, Conklin, Delta, Omas, Waterford, and many others.
