    Default Hubbard plagiarized Study Tech; here is the proof

    Hubbard stole Study Tech from a book written in 1889 by Virginia Waddy.

    Check out a few scanned pages of this book, written over a century ago.

    Co$ in typical fashion is trying to suppress this; see here:

    Emma, the copyright expired long ago on this book, so should not be any problem to post this here.

    I sup'd for ten years and am very familiar with Study Tech. There is a great deal more to it than in Waddy's book.

    Don't forget the stuff he stole from Charles Berner, per Alan's post here (post #25 in the thread).

    Some of the tech from the word-clearing series is silly, but there is a great deal in the subject that is useful, wherever it came from. Whatever contribution Waddy made to Study Tech, I heard about it because of Hubbard.

    The Berner's were English teachers - they taught in Orange County.

    They were obviously privileged to study all methods of study.

    The first Dictionary appeared 800bc. It was Japanese.

    Obviously study methods have been evolving for 1,000s of years.

    During my apprenticeship as a compositor, one of my hats was to handset type, another was as a proof reader for a small newspaper.

    We had weekly contests between, the editors, reporters, linotype operators and the compositors on "word definitions," each of us had to submit 2 words and we had to define each - there were 10 of us - the winner was the one who got the most correct. That totaled 20 words a week or a 1,000 words a year.

    Along with all the other words we would all look up in the course of doing our jobs.

    This was a common game in most newspapers and big printing establishments. It was also a game that many telegraph operators would engage in.

    There have been many great people who in their early lives - had been involved in printing and telegraph operators.

    Edison, Franklin, Carnegie, to name three - then of course there are the great teachers/philosophers who also studied study - Confucius, Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, et al.

    The truth is what it is - not what you want it to be.
