The article is online through JSTOR, if you or your library has a log-in. One may be able to read the article online by joining JSTOR, which may be free.


My local public library has a lot of digital resources, including EBSCO Academic Premier, but doesn't seem to be able to retrieve the article.


I may be able to get a copy by visiting a branch of the New York Public Library, which I may get to do next week.



edited to add: For those who are interested, QDB devotes a half-page to this treasure trove on page 84 of his Double Eagle Red Book.
