If you can get a copy, I'd be very interested in having it, too.

Offhand I can think of a number of ways to get it:


You could also contact ICGA, of which Levy is president, and see if it
was printed in some back issue and if so the cost of a reprint/copy.
Or ask ICGA where it could be found outside of the book.

If you know of a magazine where it was printed, you can find one of
several reprint services that are available on the internet, or you
can contact a major library that carries the magazine, such as the NY
Public library, have them copy it, and send it (for a fee). This is a
standard service.

Finally, you could try locating Berliner himself, presuming he isn't dead yet

I have no idea where to find this one. Maybe someone can help me.

Thanks in advance,
