Dijkstra's manuscripts

An erratic trail lead me to an archive of the late Edsger Dijkstra's writings, and copies of his manuscripts, which make interesting reading.

Remarkable is how many of his manuscripts, especially later years, are hand-written. In our touch-typing world, how easy is it to turn out text so neatly, and succinctly, and with what often looks like no correction?
