Subject: Finding US scholars' e-mail addresses

In response to all the recent requests for individual e-mail addresses,
here's another suggestion.

Mark Kantrowitz of Carnegie-Mellon University has been maintaining a
list of where to look to find undergraduate and graduate e-mail
addresses at universities and colleges (mostly US for now). Most often
the directions are good for faculty, too (and where faculty have
separate accounts, that is often indicated). He posts the list
periodically to the Usenet group soc.net-people. It can also be
obtained via anonymous ftp, following the attached directions which
Mark provided (slightly modifed by DS).

Ftp to a.gp.cs.cmu.edu (or any other cs.cmu.edu machine) and retrieve
the file /afs/cs.cmu.edu/user/mkant/Public/college-email.text. Note
that you must cd to this directory in one fell swoop, as intermediate
directories are protected. Of course, if you're running the Andrew File
System and have access to afs, you can just cd to the directory
