>>I made a power point slide on this for a presentation a while back, but it is not complete by any means. Russ Bernard was very helpful in putting it together with me. Lynton Freeman also wrote a short history which I think is on the INSNA site and maybe even in wikipedia. There is a short history outlined in Wasserman and Faust 1994.
linton freeman's book is the definitive history so far. it is available on amazon, here
i reviewed the book in SN 27(4):377-384
