Roberts (Anchor Communications, Highland Springs, Virginia, 1988, ISBN 0935633-06-5), (b) an upcoming (as of April 1999) article in The Philalethes magazine that will review the Philalethes Society's history for the past decade, (c) past articles in that magazine, and (d) helpful brethren who sent me information.
