Main Article Content

Robert J. Hoeksema


I thank Lynn Japinga and John Coakley for the invitation to participate in today's event and am indebted to Russ Gasero, RCA archivist, who made available to me the papers on the committee’s work sent to him by Donner Atwood. A few hours spent at Gardner Sage Library with materials from the archives enables me to share this information with you. I'll talk first about people, then about our process, and conclude with the resulting product, our recommendations.
