I knew about the dissertation in progress.  I've tried to contact Jeff
at U Iowa but he doesn't answere his email but I'm told (actual *was*
told, past-tense, earlier this year that he was/is "out of the country -
Paris we think" for the year.
Do you happen to know Jeff or have a suggestion for contacting him other
than through U Iowa?
