Thank you, Dan, for passing along the news. I found the new edition of Mr. Doerflinger's collection at the Smithsonian American History bookshop a number of years ago, and snapped it up. I then kept finding good copies of it in used bookstores, buying them and giving them to friends as gifts. He gave us singers of traditional work songs a true treasure. I am sorry for his passing, but glad for his long and rich life, and for the gifts his scholarship gave to us.
