This blog wouldnt happen without a number of friends, colleagues, and institutions that have made my work on it possible.  In addition to the sorts of resources I cite on the Links page, I should thank those closer to home.

For the first 25 posts, this blog depended entirely on

McCain Library of Erskine College
and John Kennerly, who leads it
for access to RILM, JSTOR, Worldcat, Oxford Music Online, and so much more
and particularly
Sara Morrison, the inter-library loan liason


Starting at post 26, I am similarly indebted to 

Simpson Library of the University of Mary Washington,
headed by Rosemary Arneson, who leads a supremely capable staff;


I must also recognize a legion of those who have answered my queries
or responded with advice and encouragement,
not always knowing precisely what they were getting into: 

Mike Bratt  (University of Mary Washington)
Gary D. Cannon  (Seattle, WA)
Bella Challis  (Chandos Records Ltd.)
W. David Conner  (Greenville, SC)
Bill Cowdery  (Cornell University)
Stephen Crist  (Emory University)
Rebecca Cypess  (Rutgers University)
Jonathan Del Mar  (London)
Ben Dobbs  (Furman University)
Barry Dreier  (Holly Springs, GA)
Meghan Duffy  (University of Michigan)
Taylor Hedger  (Erskine College)
Peter Jost  (Henle Edition)
Andrew Kraus  (University of Mary Washington)
David Lloyd-Jones  (London)
Kevin McLaughlin (Cleveland Institute of Music)
Clinton F. Niewig  (Philadelphia, PA)
Jennifer Oates  (Queens/CUNY)
Julian Onderdonk  (West Chester University)
David B. Rosen  (Cornell University)
Stanley Pelkey  (Florida State University)
Paul Rawlins  (University of Mary Washington)
Eric Saylor  (Drake University)
Rachel Scott (University of Memphis)
Patricia Puckett Sasser  (Furman University)
Vicki Stroeher  (Marshall University)
Yan Pascal Tortelier  (London)
William van Geest  (University of Michigan)
Kory Vrieze  (Erskine College)
Melissa Wells  (University of Mary Washington)
Robert Wells  (University of Mary Washington)
Chris Westover (Denison University)
Ashley Woodiwiss  (Lander University)

More specifically, I am grateful for the advice and encouragement
of a public musicology community who I dare to call peers:

Andrew DellAntonio  (University of Texas at Austin)
Kendra Preston Leonard (Houston, TX)
Linda Shaver-Gleason  (Lompoc, CA)

These lists are only going to get longer over time.

The blog certainly would not happen without my accommodating spouse, Patricia Bolen, who has been willing to tolerate the purchase of unlikely volumes, and too much time spent looking at them.

Finally, my deep gratitude to Rob Holecko, who assisted with the set-up
and has continued to help me understand what a blog is and what it does best.
His websitealthough as different as could be from thisis worth perusing.
