James Edmunds, Civil War songster
Curious inquiry, via librarian at MCC whose husband is involved in Brighton's upcoming 200th. Apparently we have a thesis (#122, Gravelle, 1970) about a Civil War manuscript songbook written by Edmund's grandfather. James Edmunds was an English prof here 1937-1971, grew up in Brighton on family farm, had this manuscript. Looked at the thesis, reviewed Edmunds' bio file, will scan and send her some info from there suggesting leads to contact, eg Edmunds' children.
