Biographies of Seattle Lunar Group Studies

[Concept Papers printed in MMMs # 106, 107, 108.]
There are many members of SLuGS. Not every member participates in every project. It is SLuGS policy to encourage the formation of small working groups within the overall organization so that multiple research projects can be undertaken simultaneously. Brief biographical information on the SLuGS members participating on this 1990 project is given below.

The entries are in alphabetical order and reflect information current as of 1991.
