Date: Sat, 24 Jan 1998 09:55:50 -0800 From: Arnold Zwicky Subject: Re: doppkit tim frazer asks about "doppkit". (didn't this go by some years ago here?) i've used that term, and that term only, since my college days (and possibly earlier than that). the same for my partner jacques. (possibly relevant biographical facts: i got my bachelor's degree in '62, he go his in '64. i grew up outside of reading, pa., and went to college at princeton. he grew up in central ohio mostly [gambier, in particular], and went to college at haverford.) i believe that the name is derived from the name of a company - Dopp - that made such kits. arnold (zwicky[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
