Here we try to capture the flavor and spirit of the study and of the people. We were fortunate to find them engaged, at the outset in the 1950s and early ’60s, in their traditional lifestyles before the advent of mechanized agriculture and heavy tourism in these regions of the seven countries. The main results of the Seven Countries Study are found at the conclusion of these notes and detailed in the complete publications referenced at this dedicated Dutch website (HB).
