Redid buttons, and added two new pages, one for Places (e.g., Ann Arbor, Amherst) and one for Sports (e.g., NESCAC football). Killed the "Work" page for now. Redid navigation bar and page logos throughout site to accomodate a bug in Internet Explorer, which browser I now loathe. Redid the A. E. Housman page to work like an expandible outline, as the Rupert Brooke and Eugene Field pages do. Dropped the literature-by-title page. Added some Eugene Field links.

Aug. 15

Added thirteen poems by Rupert Brooke, completing what's shown in the book for 1905-1908. Added a photo of Henry Bindbeutel II and H. B. III in Onset, circa 1926, that I received from John Bindbeutel. Off to Massachusetts on vacation.

Aug. 14

Added poems from Housman's A Shropshire Lad: the 11 poems between 27 and 37. Finished adding bios for Amherst College class of 1824.

Aug. 13

Added three new Eugene Field poems: To Mary Field French, Prof. Vere de Blaw, Our Lady of the Mine. Changed font throughout site (almost) to 14 point Ariel, from 14 point Times New Roman --- also changed the "by X" lines to boldface Ariel, from Ariel Black.

Aug. 12

Typed in the names of all of Eugene Field's poems. Redid the Rupert Brooke page and Eugene Field page to work more like expandible outlines, because there were too many poems listed, on one screen, for each.
