I should add as a separate footnote that the error in the data in Mees compared to the table in Mees caused some of the confusion among workers early on. The text is correct, the table has several errors which imply that Ammonium Thiosulfate is slower than some other fixers.
This was corrected in James, not by doing work to extend the knowledge, but rather by removing the table which was in error. Our work was ongoing when Howard James was rewriting M&J and Grant Haist was aware of much of the internal and external work. It was decided to let the Haist statement with external juried references stand as the evidence and to correct the situation regarding cations in fixers.
