Minutes record the decisions taken at a meeting of the ACOA Publications Committee. [William] Scheinman, [Frank] Montero, and the London Observer are to be checked for suggestions on a writer of a report on the Kenyan election. Colin Legum is to be asked to write an art1cle on East African Federat1on, and Donald Harrington is to be requested to write a report on the meeting of the steering committee of the AAPC. Several people who agreed to write materials are to be asked about their progress, including Alan Paton, Shirley Smith (regarding an article on Ethiopia), and Patrick Duncan (regarding a pamphlet about South Africa). The membership list of the African Studies Associat1on (ASA) is to be consulted with regard to possible authors for a pamphlet on African economics. Professor Joseph H. Greenburg is to be asked to review the Smythes’ book on New Nigerian Elite. George Houser is to write the lead editorial on the Kennedy Administration and Africa, and Harrison is to write an editorial on the underground railroad, featuring Kgosana. The minutes discuss Jablow (presumably Joseph Jablow), Jack (Homer Jack), Landis (Elizabeth Landis), Southern, Raymond (Catherine Raymond), Harrison (Barbara Harrison or Dale Harrison), and Betsy Landis. [Notes: Kgosana is most likely Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) leader Philip Kgosana.]
