Apostrophe Protection Society
Former UK-based non-profit organisation dedicated to the correct use of the apostrophe
The Apostrophe Protection Society was a UK society with "the specific aim of preserving the correct use of this currently much abused punctuation mark". It was founded in 2001 by John Richards, a retired sub-editor, in response to his observations of widespread incorrect use of the apostrophe. The original members of the society were Richards and his son, Stephen. By June 2001, following an article in The Daily Telegraph, there were 257 members. Initially, the society's work focused on the town of Boston, Lincolnshire, where Richards lived. Its first successful correction was getting the local library to write "CDs" instead of "CD's".
