Attitudes toward adults aged 40-59 and 60-79 were measured for graduate students in adult education (31 men, 61 women). Attitudes toward older adults were positive but became less so as the age of referents increased. Gender bias toward women over 60 was apparent. Males' attitudes toward both groups of older females and the 60-79 group of males were less positive. (SK)
