     This was the case in the past.  In fact, I remember ordering 4.2 BSD
manuals while at Bellcore.   Because Bellcore was an institutional member
this was possible.  However, there was only one person within the entire
company who was authorized to sign the form!

     In the September/October, 1987 issue of ;login: on page 10 the 
announcement was made that 4.3 manuals are now available to *all*
USENIX members.  I do believe that you must also be a holder of a
UNIX (tm)/32V license, or some derivative of it.
