List of Standards

APA Standards and Relevant Material

 

The following list was started by Mark Fields, Tony Perryman, John Norris & Doc Patterson (Bill’s dad) but many others have helped us complete the list.  Several reference materials were used as well as simply going through Standards in our individual collections.
