Indeed, graphic images of social linkages were produced long before the field emerged (Freeman, 2004, pp. 21-25). Klapisch-Zuber (2000) reports that images of kinship networks were introduced in Europe as early as the ninth century.
Figure 7 shows one of my own contemporary images (Freeman, 2004, p. 131).
Network analysis has provided problems for discrete combinatorics and discrete combinatorics has provided tools for network analysis (Freeman, 1984).
30Social network analysis did not emerge as a recognized field of study until the 1970s (Freeman, 2004). Wolfe (1978) has argued that the presence of computers was essential for social network research to move ahead far enough to be recognized. The kinds of data generated in network research typically display many more dimensions than those faced in other social research areas. Because network analysis is focused on relations linking social actors, rather than on their traits, the magnitude of computational tasks becomes large so quickly that computation without digital computers is virtually impossible.
31The earliest network-oriented computer programs were developed as soon as computers became available in the 1960s. And during the 1970s, at least eleven new computer programs for network analysis were released (Freeman, 1988; 2004, pp. 139-140).
In other social sciences, misunderstandings and conflicts often emerge as a consequence of the ambiguities inherent in the use of natural language (Freeman, 1960). With the use of mathematical arguments, these are minimized.

1On 10-14 October 2004, in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, the UNESCO-associated International Federation of Science Editors (IFSE) held its Twelfth Conference (IFSE'12) which, for the first time, included a social science session, presided over by Homero Martinez, with presentations by an editor of Social Networks (Linton C. Freeman), Field Methods (H. Russell Bernard), and the Bulletin de Méthodologie Sociologique (Karl M. van Meter).
