Corrections to finding aids

Ed Folsom noticed that two of the items listed under "Death's Valley" in the Integrated Catalog of Walt Whitman's Literary Manuscripts (uva.00133 and loc.00321) were unrelated to that poem. I have corrected the work associations in the University of Virginia and Feinberg finding aids and regenerated the Integrated Catalog.

New links added to WWA homepage

We have added a "More.." link to the Whitman Archive homepage, underneath the "In Whitman's Hand" section. This was done to reflect the fact that the Marginalia and Annotations material is not linked directly from the homepage, and to indicate to users that there are additional materials "In Whitman's Hand" that are not linked directly.

We have also added a link to "Interviews" under the "Commentary" section.

New EAD record added for NYHS manuscript

We have added an EAD record for a Whitman prose manuscript held at the New-York Historical Society Library (NYHS). This is our first EAD record for an item at the NYHS, so we have created a new manuscript catalog for that repository. An EAD entry for the manuscript has also been added to the Integrated Catalog of Literary Manuscripts.

 Text was missing from the end of a review of William Michael Rossetti's edition of Poems of Walt Whitman that appeared in the London Sunday Times on March 29, 1868. The error has been corrected.
