I might add that I assembled my notes, draft materials, interview transcripts and recordings, photographs, copies of field recordings, and other resources . . . and organized the materials provided by the work on Tommy Thompson for the Southern Folklife Collection at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill:

Lewis M. Stern Collection on Dwight Diller and Tommy Thompson #20572, Southern Folklife Collection, The Wilson Library, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill:
