My memory course is at

The Mind Palace technique

As a memory expert and memory training fan for many years I was delighted to find out that one of my favorite authors, Mark Twain was also a fan of memory training books.

He took a memory training course by a man named Professor Loisette. He was a famous memory training expert of the day and published books and memory training courses.

From what I can tell, this was Mark Twain’s introduction to memory. He went on to develop a memory training game for kids to learn history dates. This never took off and he went back to writing Huckleberry Finn and I think we are all glad he did!

In this article published by Harper’s Weekly in 1914 Mark Twain teaches how he uses a road near his farm to memorize history dates and he played a game with his kids to challenge them to remember more history facts. It is a clever and original take on memory systems.
