Hardcopies can be ordered from the National Technical Information Service (www.ntis.gov). I do not remember what the fee was when I ordered them a few years ago. There is no copyright notice on these documents, so I assume it it allowed to share copies. After all, our tax dollars (or rather, our grandparents) paid for this work.

Dempster's report is available online at the University of Michigan, but only in 10-page pieces:
http://www.hti.umich.edu/cgi/b/bib/bibperm?q1=BAB9715.0001.001. I did not find Clauser's but did not search thoroughly.

If you or another Biomch-L subscriber is willing to convert these documents to PDF, we could share them more easily. Perhaps via the ISB website. Please let me know and I will mail the documents for conversion. I also have Chandler et al. (1975). The total number of pages is about 500.
