My grandmother, who was born and lived until adulthood in Sweden, saw me studying Gregg this afternoon and revealed that when she had learned shorthand in Swedish, it had been a Gregg adaptation! She said that Gregg had been in common use in Sweden, and recognized the letter-forms in my Anniversary manual, but said she hadn't read English-language Gregg, and at any rate didn't recognize the brief forms. I hadn't heard of Gregg being used in Scandanavia, and there doesn't seem to be any mention of it on the list. If anybody's interested, I could ask her more about it, and probably get my hands on books and writing samples.
