Tonight I’ve been digging through the mountain of photocopies I made from the Ignatius Donnelly Papers over the past year or so. Almost had a heart attack when for a few moments I thought I’d shuffled some of the papers out of order a few months ago and would never remember where they’d go (I have the papers filed by microfilm roll for citation and reference purposes). Fortunately I was able to deduce that the unsorted papers came from the same roll but that I’d printed them from PDF scans I’d made. Close one.

Of course, this means the project I’m looking over is about to recommence. Kind of a scary thought.
