I am indebted to members of the Australian Industrial Research Group, who supplied many historical and technological data relating to their companies and to Dr. David Stewart who prepared some of the information used. Thanks are due to other companies who also supplied brochures and Company Annual Reports from which much detail was obtained. My thanks are due also to Miss Gregory who typed the manuscripts.
