Hi Jim. 

The first time I came across this topic was in Bonnie Erickson's paper where Kadushin and Abrams' (1973) paper on the social structure  of Yugoslav opinion-makers is discussed. Erickson addresses some of the problems associated with collecting influence data in this context.  Kadushin (2005) also has a good discussion of his social network research on elites.

Erickson, B. (1979) "Some Problems of Inference from Chain Data", Sociological Methodology, Vol. 10 (1979), pp. 276-302. 

Kadushin, C., and Abrams, P. (1973) "Social structure of Yugoslav opinion-makers. I: Informal leadership". In A. H. Barton and others (Eds.), Opinion-Making Elites in Yugoslavia. New York: Praeger. 

Good luck!
