Acknowledgements

This blog wouldn't 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

and


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;

and


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: 

Gary D. Cannon  (Seattle, WA)
W. David Conner  (Greenville, SC)
Bill Cowdery  (Cornell University)
Stephen Crist  (Emory University)
Rebecca Cypess  (Rutgers University)
Jonathan Del Mar  (London)
Ben Dobbs  (Greenwood, SC)
Barry Dreier  (Holly Springs, GA)
Meg Duffy  (University of Michigan)
Taylor Hedger  (Erskine College)
Peter Jost  (Henle Edition)
David Lloyd-Jones  (London)
Kevin McLaughlin (San Francisco Conservatory)
Clinton F. Niewig  (Philadelphia, PA)
Jennifer Oates  (Queens/CUNY)
Julian Onderdonk  (West Chester University)
Stanley Pelkey  (Florida State University)
Eric Saylor  (Drake University)
Rachel Scott (University of Memphis)
Patricia Puckett Sasser  (Furman University)
Vicki Stroeher  (Marshall University)
William van Geest  (University of Michigan)
Kory Vrieze  (Erskine College)
Chris Westover (Denison University)
Ashley Woodiwiss  (Erskine College)

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

Andrew Dell'Antonio  (University of Texas at Austin)
Kendra Preston Leonard (Houston, TX)
Linda Shaver-Gleason  (Santa Barbara, 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.
