I did check the DGA website and its directory is still a coming attraction.
The printed version of the directory would be useful, but my library does
not seem to own one. The director whom I would like to contact is John
Badham; an agency contact address would certainly be a useful place to
start. So, if Professor Lafferty or anyone else has access to the printed
DGA directory and would be willing to look up John Badham's address for me,
I'd be grateful.
