Criticism and bibliography pages updated

Ed pointed out that the Criticism index page and the Bibliography search page indicated that the bibliography included criticism only from 1975 to the present. Since we've incorporated the Giantvalley entries, the bibliography actually includes criticism from 1838 to the present. I've updated the date here and here.


Liverpool Central Library Finding Guided added

I've added a finding guide for the Liverpool Central Library to the Archive. The guide is available linked from Finding Aids for Manuscripts at Individual Repositories and directly here. I've also revised the Contributors' Contact Information page to include information for the Liverpool Central Library.


Duplicate letter removed

Ken noticed that we had up a partial transcription and a complete transcription for a piece of Civil War correspondence, the letter from Walt Whitman to LeBaron Russell of 3 December 1863. I've taken down the partial transcription.

correction to Traubel Volume 3

I've fixed a transcription error in volume 3 of With Walt Whitman in Camden.

WWWC 3: 545 read,
"A great many people down in Washington doubled it." I revised this to, "A great many people down in Washington doubted it."

Correction made in Traubel Volume 3

I have made a small correction in Traubel, With Walt Whitman in Camden, vol 3, which Ken pointed out to me. On p. 473, "Mr. Harland" at the beginning of the second paragraph was corrected to "Mr. Harlan." (I have corrected the error both in the file for the entire volume and in the file for the individual entry in question.)
