I have not spent a lot of time formatting these for Web presentation. However, I feel that any glitches in presentation are compensated for by ease of access, and the ability to search these electronic versions.

Please note that some files are long. You may need to log on at quiet times in order to download these reasonably fast. I recommend you save these files onto disk so that they can be searched at your leisure. Please feel free to pass on copies to others.

Publications continue to be available in print form - see the list at the end of these pages. Note that one of our most important publications, the Biographical Directory, is not available on the Internet for reasons of privacy.
