Bill Kaye discussed temperament and historical pitches and recommended the article A Brief History of Musical Tuning, Fidelio Magazine, Volume 1, #1, Winter 1991-92.
Wes Flinn discussed varieties of Equal Temperament (including some of Jim Coleman's temperaments), mentioned how temperaments started out pure then people adjusted them by necessity, plus he recommended several books for study.
Jim Coleman, Sr. demonstrated 4 varieties of equal temperament (Equal plus 1/7 Comma Mean Tone, EBVT III and Coleman 11 found in Wes's handout) and also had Mark Purney try them out for us. Then we all got to guess which temperament was on each piano.
