It was headed by sociologist James Davis and called project IMPRESS (Interdisciplinary Machine Processing for Research and Education in the Social Sciences]. White's SRAS project was transformed the into a larger on-line educational system that operated for a decade or two in New England colleges and high schools. Paul F. Velleman was the graduate level organizer for the project.
