have demonstrated interest in and concern about the New Age and Wicca.
Below is a listing of those with whom I have come in contact, either via
mail correspondence or through their appearance on radio and television
shows. This should not in any way be assumed to be a complete list. If
you have names, addresses, or phone numbers to add to the list, please do
so. I would appreciate being notified of any other names added to the list
so that I can add them to the files.
