1917. John Robert Gregg, a student of various shorthand systems, developed the most prolific method. He first introduced his system in 1888 in the pamphlet Light-Line Phonography published in Liverpool, England. In 1893, he published Gregg Shorthand in the United States. It was soon taught in public schools throughout the United States and adapted to several languages. The Gregg system modeled the mechanics and positioning of traditional writing and is still widely practiced today.
