William W. Osgoodby: Shorthand Organization Man and Religious Author

The first president of the New York State Stenographers’ Association, William W. Osgoodby, not only authored a best-selling shorthand system, but also wrote a 269-page narrative life of Jesus, entitled The Matchless Life. It was published by the Life Publishing Company in Rochester, NY, in 1913, the year following his retirement after working over 50 years as an official court reporter.

Additional information about Osgoodby and the origins of official court reporting in the U.S. can be found in Guardians of the Record, which can be purchased by clicking on its cover in the right hand column.
