History Timeline[edit]

I wanted to check on the timeline in the history section. In the book Small is Possible, George McRobie (one of the Practical Action founders) states they had already formed the Intermediate Technology Development Group (the Practical Action forerunner) before the article was published in the Observer. According to McRobie, the fee Schumacher received for the article was the group's first "donation." EstellaGr8 (talk) 19:08, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
