Conference Record of the 1991 IEEE Particle Accelerator Conference  
During the 1990 SLC/Mark U runs, machine backgrounds visible in the new vertex detectors were studied. These detectors had active elements at radii from 3 to 17 cm and were subjected to backgrounds unique to linear colliders. We describe recent progress in identifying sources and developing control techniques.
