CCFHA has assembled two lists which may help in your research of Corson
and its variant spellings. These lists are under revision, but in a effort
to continue to present something that might still be of use, they can be
accessed in their current formats until full revision is complete.
- Master Reference Source List - from the original compilation of all sources which have been
discovered to contain at least something relative to the above research focus.
(Note: this is a large file, 930 KB)
- Resource Lookup List - list of holdings in the personal libraries
This list is under active revision.
Members' input is needed to make this list usable for “lookups” again. Please take the time to help us help you.
In 1991 CCFHA members were invited to submit information about
reference books and materials for the purpose of creating a good bibliography
for ‘Corson’ and Colson: researchers. Along with trying to identify
any source of related information, a specific goal was to identify
those materials held in possession of members who would be willing to share.
While not obliged to lend out items or materials, those volunteering would
do lookups and try to answer research inquires. This would make information
from these materials available to those not able to find the materials elsewhere,
or to personally add them to their own collection.
Eventually the list grew to about 900 entries. A past version has been offered
as one of the publications available for purchase from the CCFHA. During
2002 it was made available to CCFHA members free of charge on the CCFHA website,
in the members-only section.
Some revisions had been made because the original contacts became out of
date, but the list was reviewed and it was found to be in need of thorough
Both goals depend on member input. We hope you will want to help with one of the goals or both.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
A form has been developed to help you submit those sources that you have
found, and to identify those from which you can do lookups. A lookup
is an easy task if the source is in your own personal library, but if you
have found a 'Corson' source which might be rare or unique in a repository near you,
then this would be very helpful to someone having no other way to access
such isolated information.
