Section A, Biographical and personal, includesinvitations relating to academic, committee and public service, as well as little personal correspondence. Section K, References and recommendations, contains refereeing by Wager of papers for publication, and also some personal and academic references. Section L, Correspondence, is mainly shorter items on research and publications, requests for information and thelike. Thereis also an index of correspondents.
