You might try writing to Don Trumpler. In the past I believe he took
considerable interest in spliced Kent and Oxford, and I think it
likely he collected as many of the historical compositions as he could
find. I'd CC him on this reply, except as I recall these lists are
configured to think any messages CCed to others are suspect. I'll
forward it to him instead. His address is

Eddie's middle initial was 'W', and I think Roddy said that one was
attributed to an "E R Martin"?
