The Emigrant Pests report was prepared by Dr. Russell C. McGregor (consultant and chairman of the "Import Inspection Task Force") for Dr. Francis J. Mulhern (administrator, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service) in May, 1973. It is still (2003) regarded as a very important document with respect to invasive species prevention issues. It was, for example, included in its entirety as an appendix to the recently-produced Kahului Airport Risk Assessment document.
