Edna St. Vincent Millay Personal Library Catalog

Posted by Amanda French on December 1, 2011

When Edna St. Vincent Millay died in 1950, her sister Norma moved in to her home, called Steepletop, in Austerlitz, NY. Ever since 1950, Millay's personal library has remained relatively undisturbed. Over the years, one or two casual inventories of the books were made, but they are filled with errors, and they've never been published nor put into digital form. This project aims to create an accurate digital catalog of the library and to record as much as possible of the inscriptions and marginalia in the works.

SceneDEX - American Music Scenes Index

Posted by Micah Vandegrift on November 17, 2011

This is a project that has not been started yet. It is a personal and academic interest of mine, and I'd like to gather a group of collaborators to get it started. There are plenty of archives that already exist that hold these sorts of objects and materials - I'd like to create a webspace to cull these collections and provide a way for materials to be submitted, organized and archived.

Tredegar

Posted by lee Ann Ghajar on September 2, 2011

This archival site on Tredegar Iron Works, Richmond, Virginia, in the latter half of the nineteenth century is very much in the beta/inception/conception stages--barely off the ground. Specifically this is intended to explore the ironworks, business and technology of the iron industry, and the interlocking elements of local, state, and regional history.

Villanelle Anthology

Posted by Amanda French on August 11, 2011

This is a hobby project I've just started to create a database of villanelles. For my dissertation, I collected a list of over 300 villanelles, and I have full text for many of them. I also have a lot of secondary materials, entries from poetry handbooks and the like.
