Ruth R. Struik investigated the nilpotent group , where G is a free product of a finite number of cyclic groups, not all of which are of infinite order, and Gm is the mth subgroup of the lower central series of G. Making use of the “collection process” first given by Philip Hall in [8], she determined completely for 1 ≦ np + 1, where p is the smallest prime with the property that it divides the order of at least one of the free factors of G. However, she was unable to proceed beyond n = p + 1.
