Horace took up the study of penmanship as a child. His first penmanship teacher was Platt Rogers Spencer, the creator of Spencerian Script, a uniform system of cursive writing.

Shaylor was in the 1863 graduating class of Platt R. Spencer School of Penmanship of Geneva, Ohio. The school was a small log structure; the students had to supply their own chairs and candles.
