Description

Pope writes from Cambridge, Massachusetts and updates Bennett on his movements across the Northeast as he conference-hops his way to Madison with his family in tow. He gives a less-than-stellar review of the Literary Data Processing Conference hosted by IBM, with sarcastic references to the digital humanities work of Joseph Raben on Shelley and the Jesuit priest Fr. Roberto Busa's concordance project for the works of St. Thomas Aquinas. Date is approximate, based on Pope's reference to the recently finished Literary Data Processing Conference in Yorktown Heights, New York, which ran from September 9-11, 1964.
