Dave Fisher will be putting in a full day a week scanning the correspondence files. The categories are basically going to be a) letters to and from me b) publications (signed and personalized to me) c) publications (signed) d) publications (unsigned) and e) other.
I went through a 2005 file just to see how it would work. The "other" category came about because there was a play script in there that I had asked the local theatre director to give me as "step one" in doing an article for Sandeep's VERSUS about how a play develops, behind the scenes. An article that never happened and which I had completely forgotten about.
Obviously in those situations, I have to write a description because I'm the only person who knows what I'm looking at. HOW that's going to be accomplished is another question. But, for now just getting all the letters in chronological order and cross-referencing them with the PUBLICATIONS is "Job One".
