New periodical and journalism material added

New material has been added to the Archive's "Periodicals" section. We have added transcriptions of 39 editorials likely authored by Whitman as editor of the New York Aurora. In order to draw a distinction between Whitman's role as a newspaper writer and his role as a newspaper editor, we have created a new "Newspaper editing" section, in which we offer page images of full issues of papers for which Whitman served as editor. Currently, we offer images of the Aurora and link to the Brooklyn Public Library's images of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. We have also updated the main "Periodicals" index page to reflect these new additions. Along with the Aurora material, we have added a new introduction to Whitman and the Aurora, written for the Archive by Jason Stacy.
