I would love to say that so far my The People and the Text (TPatT) colleagues and I have undergone a systematic search for materials. We have been able to find materials through archival searches, but what has been surprising is all we have found through our relationships with interested collaborators. By beginning with community contacts and also through conversations with retiring scholars in the field, we keep coming across gems we did not expect to find.
