Editorial Acknowledgments

The Whitman Archive has benefited from the work of a number of previous editors, especially those who worked with general editors Gay Wilson Allen and Sculley Bradley on The Collected Writings of Walt Whitman (New York: New York University Press, 1961–1984; Iowa City: University of Iowa Press, 2004). We have drawn particularly heavily on the various volumes of The Correspondence, edited by Edwin Haviland Miller (vols. 1–6) and Ted Genoways (vol. 7), and Notebooks and Unpublished Prose Manuscripts, edited by Edward F. Grier.
