We have obtained a large body of photometry and echelle spectra for a set of stars composed of all Gliese catalog M dwarfs north of -10° and brighter than 12th magnitude. A paper reviewing the results of the M dwarf program will appear shortly (Stauffer and Hartmann 1985). Here we will outline a few of our conclusions.
