From: "Dolgon, Corey" <Cdolgon at worcester.edu>

In the early 1990s, my colleagues mike kline and laura dresser 
wrote a couple of pieces on the homeless action committee in ann 
arbor michigan. in particular to your interests was the way in which 
the group used a walking tour for organizational purposes and how 
we had used oral history and research to design the tour. we had 
an article in the journal of community practice (v 8, number 2, 
2000) but the major piece was in a collection called Marginal 
Spaces Comparative Urban and Community Research, Vol 5)  , 
edited by Michael Peter Smith hope it helps. 

peace, corey dolgon
