Bibliography and Acknowledgements.......

In preparing this web site, I took the liberty of using many reference materials on polygraph history and instruments. In some cases, I out right plagerized those materials. I do this shamelessly, as I expect no monetary gain by publishing this web site. It was published for the education and entertainment of other polygraph examiners and polygraph history buffs.
But, I feel it is important to acknowledge this "unknowing" contribution by these authors and individuals. I deeply appreciate the research they have done and hope that they will forgive me for taking liberties with their published materials.
The list below is but a small collection of those materials. If I have forgotten someone, please forgive me.....
