Recently I have discovered for myself some wonderful publications
on the inheritance of human longevity:
Hawkins M.R., E.A.Murphy, H.Abbey, 1965. The familial components in
longevity. A study of the offspring of nonagenarians. I.Methods and
preliminary report. Bull.John Hopkins Hosp. vol.117, pp.24-36.
Abbott M.H., E.A.Murphy, D.R.Bolling and H.Abbey, 1974. The familial
component in longevity: A study of offspring of nonagenarians. II.Preliminary
analysis of the completed study. Johns Hopkins Med.J. vol.134, pp.1-16.
Abbott H.M., Abbey H., Bolling D.R., Murphy E.A. The familial
component in longevity - A study of offspring of nonagenarians.
III. Intra-familial studies. Am.J.Med.Genet., 1978, vol.2, pp.109-120.
Zauber, A.G. 1976. Multiple regressions with censored survivals in
a Makeham model with application to longevity, Ph.D. thesis, Johns Hopkins
I am most interested to establish E-mail contacts with the authors
of these outstanding papers and scientific collaboration with these
If anybody can help me with their E-mail addresses?
My guess is that all these scientists are from the same organization:
Division of Medical Genetics
Department of Medicine
The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
Thank you in advance,
