Tracking down a source

I have a reprint of Linda Flower and John Hayes "The Cognition of Discovery: Defining a Rhetorical Problem." I have lost the original reference information. The pagination is 92-102 and it is followed by Lee Odell's "The Process of Writing and The Process of Learning." Anyone out there have a clue? I've dug through library databases, google scholar, and even tried out Amazon's A9 search--no luck.

Is it this?

Perl, Sondra, ed. Landmark Essays on Writing Process. Davis, Calif.: Hermagoras Press, 1994.

Eighteen essays, arranged chronologically, beginning with Janet Emig's "The Composing Process: Review of the Literature" (1971). Essays include Sondra Perl, "The Composing Processes of Unskilled College Writers"; Linda Flower and John Hayes, "The Cognition of Discovery: Defining a Rhetorical Problem" (etc.)

I also found: Flower, Linda and John Hayes. "The Cognition of Discovery: Defining a Rhetorical Problem." CCC 31 (Feb 1980): 21-32.

Don't know if this helps!

It's in G. Tate & E. Corbett (Eds.), The writing teacher's sourcebook (pp. 92- 102). New York: Oxford University Press. Does that help at all?

I think that was it. I went back to the original, though.
