Origins of Gregg Alphabet

Hello to all! Glad to be here. It's refreshing seeing the Gregg group's new look. Very web 2.0 if I may say so. I used to read and never post on the old MSN group, so this is quite the change for me. I daresay I should've posted sooner but oh well.

I am curious about the origins of the Gregg alphabet. Gregg shorthand has a very distinctive look. How did Gregg come up with them? Or should I say, did Gregg come up with it? I could have sworn I read a post on the old group site suggesting that he didn't, but maybe I am just mis-remembering. Please reply if you know, or if you wrote that post! Thank you.
