Wilson, who passed away at 95 years old. Albert was a close friend of Dr. Troncale, and they shared a collegial friendship and mutual support and stimulation relationship for about half a century.

- the entire archives of Troncale,
- the archives of the IAS (Institute for Advanced Systems Studies),
- the archives of the ISGE (Integrated Science General Education Program),
- the physical archives of the ISSS (International Society for the Systems Sciences),
- the electronic archives of ISSS,
