Return to the History of CALL-IS Document  

 

84 responses

 

Responses are, in many cases, open ended.  Responses were  tagged to name and address in the initial mail-out.  They were no anonymous, but were seen as a tool for networking. The results were distributed with numbers next to each answer, indicating who had said yes, and at the back was a two-page list of names and addresses, linked by number.  (The names and addresses are not reproduced here.)
