non-commercial OCR software

Fri Apr 10 06:51:28 EST 1992

Does anyone out there who is more familiar with internet resources or
clever people know of some non-commercial (e.g. freeware, shareware)
optical character recognition software that will run on a Mac under
System 7? I have access to a scanner and a primitive (no superdrive)
Mac II but the only OCR software I know about is $$$.  I want to run
some tests on text entry and manipulation for a project in quantitative
history of genetics in the post-war period. I have compiled data for a
"map" of about 16 major geneticists (research relationships of scholarly
works) but the data entry is massive.

Thanks for any help.
