Hi Sula,

Thanks.  I'll take a look at this after the Thanksgiving luncheon. 
Attached is a table with what I have so far on types from RSA-POM, HNT, 
SBBG, SD, UCR, and UCSB.  The figures for us, UCR, and SD are pretty 
firm, those for HNT, SBBG, and UCSB are sketchier.  I've yet to hear 
back from them and with the exception of UCR, still need to ask about 
whether our partners have their types segregated or interfiled with 
their main holdings.  You might know the situation at SD.

I've yet to hear back from Bill Robertson regarding the meetings, and 
may not until after the Thanksgiving holiday.  At worst we can 
guestimate $1500 per person, which would cover most areas of the US for 
a couple days, but maybe not foreign venues.

Steve
