We are very pleased to announce a milestone just passed: the thousandth letter has been added to the Leigh Hunt Online . While we have about 600 to go, the project has already been offered a few letters held by other institutions – and even some that remain in private hands.
This project was funded by the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation and got underway a year ago. Through June, it was headed by Nana Holtsnider, then Ruth Bywater Olson Fellow, and since July it has been headed by Juli McLoone, Robert Olson Fellow. A highly productive group of student assistants have scanned letters and transcriptions, edited transcripts, and built CONTENTdm records.
