Correction to encyclopedia entry

Kelly Franklin alerted us to the fact that the Walt Whitman Encyclopedia entry for the 1860 edition of Leaves of Grass listed the number of poems in the "Leaves of Grass" cluster as 21, when it should be 24.  I have corrected the entry.

Supplemented annotation for 1881 letter

Ken located an entry in Horace Traubel's With Walt Whitman in Camden where Whitman discusses his letter to Longfellow of February 20, 1881, requesting an autograph.  I have added an excerpt from this discussion to the annotation for the letter.

Corrections to correspondence annotations

Two letters from Whitman to William Michael Rossetti (of September 1 and 10, 1876) mentioned a letter from Whitman to Dowden in the annotations.  The date for this letter to Dowden was incorrectly listed in the annotations as January 20, 1872.  I have corrected the date for the Dowden letter to January 18, 1872 in both cases.

Fixed link to a video on Articles and Interviews about the Archive page

A link to a 2011 video by University of Nebraska-Lincoln University
Communications, featuring an interview with Ken Price about his
discovery of the scribal documents, was broken. I updated the link,
and the video now plays in most browsers. There is additional
trouble-shooting we need to do to have it viewable in Chrome, but in
other browsers the video can be viewed at

Publicity video in about section now playable

For some time, the 2004 publicity video about the Whitman Archive was
not playing in web browsers. I updated the sitemap to address this
issue, and the video should now play. The video is linked from

Corrected word spelling in correspondence

In an April 2, 1870 letter from Charles Warren Stoddard to Walt Whitman, Stoddard spelled the word "prose" as "proze."  I've updated the transcription accordingly.
