Comment: Re: SHK 18.0357 Upstart Crow
It was my understanding that as long ago as 1970 Professor Louis Marder
in "The Shakespeare Newsletter" described at length the finding that
"Greenes Groats-worth of Wit" had not been written by Robert Greene but
had in fact been written by Henry Chettle!
The discovery of this fact in 1969 is credited to a Texas Professor,
Warren B. Austin. The U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare
had funded Austin's computer based research and the U.S. Government was
responsible for its publication.
