Swedish Gregg

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.
