Sorry for spamming the list with something other than a conference solicitation, but I have an actual question about social network analysis. Weird...
Back in November, Jim Moody inquired about the collection of 742 sociomatrices James Davis analyzed in his classic (1970) paper:
Davis, J.A. 1970. Clustering and hierarchy in interpersonal relations: Testing two graph theoretical models on 742 sociomatrices. American Sociological Review. 35 (5):843-851. (doi:10.2307/2093295)
From this collection of sociomatrices, Davis concludes that there is a deficit of 201 triads and, among 030 triads, a deficit of cyclical triads (what Davis calls 030B, but what would be 030C in the standard MAN nomenclature).
I know that Jim was unsuccessful in his efforts to find these data. The CASOS data repository (and elsewhere) has the Allison Davis two-mode data from the (1941) Deep South book, not the James Davis collection of sociomatrices.
Davis notes that the data (from a larger collection of 901 that he and Leinhardt assembled) were on punch cards. Has this resource been lost to science? It would be a real shame, since the work of Davis and Leinhardt is so foundational to nearly everything we do.
Anyone have any leads?
