Thanks to wonderful initial support on my Ko-fi, I purchased a six-month subscription to newspapers.com’s Publisher Extra. This gives me access to all the things. Although I won’t be diving headlong into the site for another couple of weeks (after I wind up the scrapbook project), I have been unable to completely resist its siren’s call. There is amazing content on there, y’all. See below.
RESEARCH NOTES: WEEK 22
- VICTORY: Receiving support on Ko-fi is surprising, humbling, and much needed. Every penny helps. Thank you, thank you.
- HAPPY DISCOVERY: J starred as Kathie in a prominent touring production of The Student Prince. This roadshow company performed in major US cities during the operetta’s initial Broadway run. This was a BIG DEAL, ultimately ranking as one of her greatest professional achievements. Having access to Publisher Extra allowed me to start filling in some of the details of this exciting period in her life.
- FRUSTRATION: Information is coming at me so fast that I might have to rethink my project timeline. Will three-ish years be enough time to complete my research? No idea, at this point.
- CURRENTLY READING: Memphis Movie Theatres by Vincent Astor
- HOURS SPENT ON RESEARCH: Not enough
Until next time!
