Hello, I am new to the blog, but so glad to have found it.  I learned shorthand from the Gregg Diamond Jubilee Series in the mid 1970’s.  I used it in many jobs and served in the US Army, in Frankfurt Germany in the late 1970’s. When the Commander of our Battalion learned I took shorthand I was assigned to the Command staff as it’s main clerk.  I subsequently went to college and earned a B.S. and M.A. but my shorthand was always a prize to me.  Now retired, I found some Diamond Jubilee series books on E Bay and re-discovered my love of shorthand.  While searching for more reading material in shorthand I found the blog and I am just thrilled to know others love shorthand as much as I do.  Thank you, I hope to be a contributor, however, my greatest joy will be reading more shorthand from other devotees.

  1. Hi Susan, welcome!

    The first physical shorthand book I got a hold of was actually a slim booklet of an army manual for Anniversary, printed in Madison, WI. Funnily enough, it was in a university library in Frankfurt. Might have been a left over from someone who was posted there!

    1. Interesting – I served at the 709th MP battalion headquarters in Frankfurt without my shorthand skill I am not sure I would have received that posting 

  2. Wecome, Susan! We're always glad to have another shorthand lover join the group. I expect you'll find this blog really useful; I know I have. And the readings Carlos posts are fun and interesting.
