Once upon a time there were two research communities, one called the Hatfields and the other the McCoys. They were as different as night and day. The Hatfields were located in the valley amidst their research subjects, the McCoys in an ivory tower on the hill. They each looked at the world so differently that their offspring were not allowed to intermarry for fear that the worldviews would mingle and be contaminated.
Yet there were many similarities. Both communities depended upon their offspring to carry out research for their continuation. Both initiated their children into the ways of doing research by having a veteran researcher, a grandmother on the father’s side, explain the ways of doing research to the initiate. And both devoted their attention to posing and answering questions about children with communication problems.
