Long, long, long ago on this list (April 2002), I posted some questions about white papers--what they are, what function they serve, etc.--and I eventually used what I learned as part of a short paper for a graduate course in technical writing. That paper was later expanded for another class assignment, then expanded again, and again, until somehow it became the over-large tome I passed off as my master's thesis.

While I focused largely on the history of white papers over production, I thought the info might be of interest to some on the list. So feel free to download and peruse the material. Enjoy!
