I faxed the earlier query about the Folger/Undergraduate support this morning
to Tom McCance, the development Director and I am sure he will forward to
Peggy. There is at least one person at the Folger reading the SHAKSPER list, I
believe (but I am not sure who).  The Folger has a very good record of
outreach, so I am optimistic they will find a way to be helpful.

You could look at David Norbrook's very helpful "_Macbeth_ and the
Poltics of Historiography" in _Politics of Discourse_, ed. Kevin Sharpe
and Steven N Zwicker (Berkeley, 1987), pp.78-116.

Since Georgianna Ziegler is on this list, I am sure you'll hear from her.
Under the capable leadership of Peggy O'Brien, the Folger has a deep and
rich program for teachers and students through 12th grade. Last time I was
there, hoards of students were there in the great hall and theater but not in
the library itself. The Folger as you may have heard has recently received
a large grant to expand its public programs, including those for school
children.
 
I'll be there on Monday; let me know by Sunday night whether I can look into
anything for you.
 
Yours,
 
Bernice W. Kliman

Writing from City College, one end of the original BITNET connection linking
CCNY and YALE (so I've been told), I began giggling and Santa-Claus-dreaming
about the games one could play with the UVa system.  The exquisite labors of
community-building, funding, training, and actively applauding of
accomplishments that David Gants exhibits in his description should be a model
held up to all of our local librarians and local computer services folks.  Now
we can hope that the new guys in Washington hear about these possibilities.
The idea of a post office worked such a revolution, as did the idea of the
easy-access public and university library.  The basic drives seem to be a
spirit of generosity and a commitment to free exploration of possibilities.
Hey, sounds like art.
 
I'll be forwarding your description of the UVa system to my campus friends.
 
                         Cheers!

To Howell Chickering and others similarly interested:
 
You should get in touch with Peggy O'Brien at the Folger. I don't know what her
formal title is there, but I do know that her commitment to the Folger's
education outreach is very strong. She's done splendid things there with and
for secondary-school students, and I imagine she'd be the best one to help you
with stuff for your undergraduates. I don't know whether she's on the SHAKSPER
network (I don't recall seeing her name listed) but snail-mail will reach her,
as will a phone call to the Folger. Good luck.
