I finally finished the 19-page book chapter “In Celebration of Armen Alchian’s Eightieth Birthday” from “Uncertainty and Economic Evolution: Essays in Honor of Armen A. Alchian”.
I was particularly touched by this quote in “In Celebration“,

Here is Alchian’s insightful article about Property Rights.
Apr 24, 2008 Update: Here is an hour long audio interview of Alchian, “The Intellectual Portrait Series: A Conversation with Armen A. Alchian (2000)” at The Online Library of Liberty [Hat Tip: Gary & Josh]
