"Problems in U.S. Standard-Setting: The Implications of the Shift to Control Functions," with Lafayette Walker. MIDWEST REVIEW OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION 13 (1, March), 1979: 25-49.


[This article was an initial foray into the field of government regulation. It focuses on the increasing reliance on standard-setting and the implications of that trend.

Several years my senior, the late Dr. Walker eventually left government service for the private sector.]
