Hi, I am trying to find a copy of Eastman's Harvard thesis(1958) Linear Programming with Pattern Constraints. Supposedly it was a seminal paper since it solved the TSP problem by combining branch and bound with a Hungarian algorithm optimization. Curiously, it is cited often but I cannot find it being published.

If you know of a way I can get a copy, please leave a note on the or-exchange. Thank you.

It's possible that it's not available online. There should be a copy in the Harvard library, and you can probably request it.

OCLC WorldCat Dissertations or ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Database would be places one could check [for an online copy] - ...of course, only if enrolled at a high-profile university (preferably Harvard, in this case).
