We report results from a continuation of our searches for high field magnetic white dwarfs (WDs) paired in a detached binary with non-degenerate companions.

These include 1735 WD plus M dwarf detached pairs (almost 10% of the Kleinman et al.'s list). No new pairs were found, although we did recover the polar (AM Herculis system) ST LMi in a low state of accretion. With...[Show more]
