Electron-proton coincidences from the reaction e- + p --> e- + p + pi0 have been measured for pion-nucleon center-of-mass energies in the region of the N*(1236) resonance at four-momentum transfers near 1, 3, 6, and 10 F^-2 [0.05 to 0.4 (BeV/c)^2]. Data have been obtained for pion polar angles between 100 and 180 in the center of mass over a wide range of azimuthal angles. The results are compared with the dispersion theories of Adler and Zagury.
