It was my understanding that as long ago as 1970 Professor Louis Marder 
in "The Shakespeare Newsletter" described at length the finding that 
"Greenes Groats-worth of Wit" had not been written by Robert Greene but 
had in fact been written by Henry Chettle!

The discovery of this fact in 1969 is credited to a Texas Professor, 
Warren B. Austin. The U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare 
had funded Austin's computer based research and the U.S. Government was 
responsible for its publication.

Best,
Elliott H. Stone
