The Champions Write

In one of my Gregg Writer magazines, it was mentioned the movie "The Champions Write". I'd imagine this be some sort of documentary with Gregg and other pen stenographers.

It would be amazing to watch. Does anyone know of any existing copies?

  1. I read about it, too.  I've searched a bit and can't seem to find it.  Anybody about here hooked into educational film archives?  I'd give my eye teeth to get a look at that.

  2. A few years back, I remember something on Ebay from the Klein study where both students and expert writers were filmed. I think someone was selling a copy so there are resources out there. The problem may be finding a projector!

  3. These were apparently industrial films produced by Gregg. It would be a gas if a copy could be found.

    Here's more info:
