Aha!  I never found up what the "S" stood for until now.  This would be the brother, presumably?

Quite right.
Not surprising that he ended up publishing with Jesse Payton (of P D & S)--they all grew up together in a little town in Maine--Hope.

Link to The Payson, Dunton & Scribner Manual of Penmanship
by A. R. Dunton

Just to clear up an often confused point--the Dunton in Payson, Dunton & Scribner is Seldom Dunton, not A. R. Dunton.

A. R. Dunton's manuals were entitled The Original Duntonian System of Rapid Writing.

Ah! (palm hit to forehead)

The source I used has both titles listed.
