Morris Library, Southern Illinois University, Carbondale 2004

This is what happens when you forget to take your camera with you, of course: you have to buy a throw-away-after-one-use type, and the result is inevitably crap. Anyway, this is the Morris Library in Carbondale the first time I visited it. Here, you can access the Lionel Britton Collection: 45 cubic feet, in 90 boxes, of the working-class writer Britton's correspondence and unpublished manuscripts from 1885 to 1971, the year of his death.

Many thanks to all at the Special Collections Research Center for all your help both in 2004 and 2007. Threat: I may well be back sometime.
