M. H. Stone raised the problem ([1] Problem 70) of characterising the class of distributive pseudo-complemented lattices ℒ = 〈L; ∨, ∧, 0, 1〉 in which a* ∨ a** = 1 holds identically. Several solutions to this problem have now been offered — the first being by G. Grätzer and E. T. Schmidt [6], who gave this class of lattices the name Stone lattices. Later solutions were given by J. Varlet [11], O. Frink [4] and G. Grätzer [5]; see also G. Bruns [2].
