In the last issue, on p. 76, "Cambridge School of Arts and Crafts" should have been "Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts."
Edith Diehl, subject of E.A. Thompson's biographical article on p. 73 in the December issue, has been dead for many years. The article erroneously gave the impression that she was still alive and teaching.
The source of the information about William Berwick in the article on crêpeline lamination (January 1980, p. 9) was a remarkable master's thesis by Claire S. Marwick, "An Historical Study of Paper Document Restoration Methods," The American University, 1964 (Library Science). It is remarkable because of the large number of primary sources used, and the care and judgement with which the work was done. It is 171 pages long and can be ordered through xerox-University Microfilms, Ann Arbor, MI. Document # M-67O. (Credit was omitted in the article.)
