Metadata updated across Whitman Archive

I have now finished updating the metadata across the Whitman Archive.  This change involved reordering metadata categories; merging location, publication, and transcription information into a "Source" note; updating page titles; and making contributors to digital file, "View XML," and citation options available for several additional sections of the Archive.
