Joseph David Everett (1831-1904) was an English physicist and professor of natural philosophy at Queen’s College, Belfast. Everett invented a shorthand system, a competitor to the well-known Pitman system. This certificate is signed by Everett and certifies that Mr J. W. Mellor, as a member of the Everett Shorthand Society, has sufficient skills in writing and reading shorthand to teach others. Mellor used Everett shorthand in many of his notebooks.
