We have measured the fraction of J/psi mesons originating from chi(c) meson decays in p (p) over bar collisions at root s = 1.8 TeV. The fraction, for P-T/(J/psi) > 4.0 GeV/c and \(eta) over dot(J/psi) < 0.6, not including contributions from b flavored hadrons, is 29.7% +/- 1.7%(stat) +/- 5.7%(syst). We have determined the cross sections for J/psi mesons originating from chi(c) decays and for directly produced J/psi mesons. We have found that direct J/psi production is in excess of the prediction of the color singlet model by the same factor found for direct psi(2S) production.
