The Carlyle Letters Online


NEH, Delmas, and AHRC

Both the print and the electronic editions of the Carlyle Letters Project would not be possible without the generous support of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Special thanks are also due to the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation for its gracious contributions, which have made the April 2013 update of the CLO possible and have enabled the editors and the press to reach matching funds goals set by the NEH during five previous granting periods (2003–6, 2006–9, 2009–12, 2012–15, and 2015–18). A large debt of gratitude is also owed to the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) in the United Kingdom for its support of the Edinburgh editorial operation.

Saint Joseph's

The editors also wish to express their grateful appreciation to Saint Joseph's University, in particular to Rev. C. Kevin Gillespie, S.J., President, and Dr. Brice Wachterhauser, Provost, for their generous contributions towards NEH matching funds requirements, and for their support of the work done by senior editor David R. Sorensen.

University of South Carolina

Sincere thanks are due to Thomas F. McNally, Dean of Libraries, and to David Lee Miller, director of the USC-Center for Digital Humanities, for their support of both the CLO migration and the Victorian Lives and Letters Consortium.

The Editors and the Librarians

Without the monumental efforts of the past and present editors of the Collected Letters, this electronic project would, of course, never have been conceived. In particular, the importance of Stephen A. Cohn and David R. Sorensen, the principal investigators for the NEH grants that continue to play an essential role in the funding of the project, cannot be overestimated. In addition, all of the editors involved with the Carlyle Letters Project have benefited from the unfailing kindness, assistance, and enthusiasm of a vast host of librarians, also without whom this project, both in print and in electronic form, would have been impossible. All of them are extended eternal thanks and gratitude.


Of the many remarkable aspects of this project, none is more remarkable than the intimate, integrated working relationship that develops among the various entities charged with achieving the launch of both versions of the CLO.

At the University of South Carolina Center for Digital Humanities: Colin Wilder, Co-Director; Rachel Mann, Digital Humanities Graduate Fellow; Travis Mullen, Senior Programmer; Eric Gonzalez, Programmer; Julia Strout, Programmer; George Clayton, Web Developer; and Collin Haines, Web Developer.

At Duke University Press: Rebekah Kati, Digital Publishing Technologist; Mike Brondoli, Journals Production Manager; Kelly Andrus, Lead Designer; Sue Hall, Art Director; David Southern, Managing Editor.

As always, the coordinating editor remains exceptionally grateful to all of the colleagues, friends, and students who have assisted him with various tasks at various times over the last several years, especially to Mary Adams, Mary Ann Gobble, and Lindsey Peterson, but also to Lauren Dorminey, Rod Franco, Sarah M. Hanson, Kirsten Huscusson, Philip Kowalski, Robert Martinez, Travis Mullen, Terrence Muzzell, Elizabeth Nissly, Ian Oakes, Christian Rogers, Thomas Rogers, Christine Shia, Taylor Sledge, Marie Stephens, Jennifer Veilleux, Heather Williams, Bobby Willover, Sarah Wolfe, and Kelsey Woodburn.

Paolo Mangiafico of Perkins Library at Duke University will always deserve a special chapter in the history of the CLO for his vital assistance in the crucial early stages of development.
