I received the first four articles from Julius C Moody. I don't know where they were originally published. One appears to have come from something called "Observer". My copies appear to be copies of copies of copies ... and were difficult to read in some places. I used the OCR capabilites of my scanner to scan them in and then cleaned up those scanned copies. The copies you see here are in PDF format so they will open on your screen using Adobe Reader and if you want you can reproduce them on your printer.
