Subject: Old Unix manuals, TMs, etc


I started working at Bell Labs in 1971 and although
not in the computing science research department, I
was in another department down the hall.  As a result
I have many old Unix manuals, TM's and other papers
that I wish to dispose of.  I found you when I did a
search to see if there was anyone who might want them.
Appended below is a list of what I have.  If you are
interested in any of it or know who else might be, please
let me know.  If I can't find anyone to take them I guess
I'll just throw them out.
