to the Dogged Research Associates web pages. Several years ago
when we were trying to decide what we wanted to be when we
grew up (we had just turned 40), we decided that we really
wanted to do research in the areas that interested us at the
time. We are trained as engineers but have interests in
everything from etymology, music, dance, archeology, history,
cooking, art, literature, James Bond, and whatever happens to
be the subject of the book we are reading.
As a result, we formed Dogged Research Associates as a
business we could gradually build. Our business cards say
”Specializing in esoteric and eclectic subjects,” which
pretty much sums it up. “Dogged,” of course, means
tenacious, persistent, stubborn, not willing to give up, which
we think are good traits for a researcher. (For more
information on the word “dogged” please see The
Toad’s Words Excursus #15.)
