I don't have WordPro, but I have the DOS version of WordPerfect 5.0 on a
machine designed to convert old archives. It converts almost everything. I
can check to see if it will convert WordPro if you can't find somebody with
WordPro.

If no one on the list can help, you might consider these alternatives:

-- A freeware viewer for Word Pro files:

http://www.s2services.com/lwp-viewers.htm

>From there you can copy/paste or (if you have Acrobat) print to PDF and
export that to RTF.

--An online conversion service ($10/MB):

http://www.acii.com/online.htm

They also sell conversion software with broad capabilities, if this sort
of thing comes up often.

-- Convert to HTML and then open that with Word. This page lists some
ways of doing that (plus many other conversions):

HTH!
