I am looking for a data set containing the information from a randomized trial evaluating the effect of DES (diethylsilbestrol) on multiple time-to-event endpoints, prostate cancer, CVD, and other causes.  The original source of this data is Green and Byar (1980).  This is a popular competing risks problem that has subsequently been discussed in a number of statistical papers including Kay (1986).  

Does anyone have a digital version of this data set?  

This data is also presented in Andrews, D. F. and Herzberg, A. M. (1985). Data.   Does a digital version of all the data sets in A & H exist?

Thanks very much,
