I am much indebted to Christine Stevens, President of the Animal Welfare Institute, who allowed me to benefit from an extensive literature search on painful experimentation carried out by Jeff Diner in 1977-78. I am also grateful to Dr. Herbert Rackow for his suggestions concerning pain-relieving drugs.

At Argus Archives, Jean Stewart applied her many professional talents to research, proofreading and preparing the lengthy reference list. Eileen Ward typed the copy for the printer with exceptional care.
