What was the Constitutional Convention originally called?

The convention of 1787 had no official name when it was called by Congress in its February 1787 resolution. It merely set a date and place for the convention. Indeed references to the convention afterward were equally vague in title. Not until 1835 when Congress authorized the publishing of the official record of the convention taken by the designated secretary of the convention, was an official title given to the convention. The official title given the convention by act of Congress was the "1787 Federal Convention."

Who is Jacob Shallus?

Jacob Shallus (1750-1796) was the Engrosser or Penman of the United States Constitution whose hand-written copy of the Constitution is on display in the US National Archives. Jacob Shallus served as Assistant Clerk to the Pennsylvania General Assembly at the time of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. Although his name appears nowhere on the official document, the investigation into the identity of the Penman in 1937 for the 150th anniversary of the Constitution revealed the identity of the transcriber and that $30 was paid for "clerks employed to transcribe & engross." Shallus is also credited as Assistant Secretary in the 1790 re-authoring of the State Constitution of Pennsylvania.
