Questions

  1. What do we want to do with omitted entry numbers? Just skip them? Or should they be included in the digital version but not the printed?
  2. Are the numbers on Donna’s transcript the new, correct numbers? (I know Mike said that Mailer mis-numbered some entries.)
  3. Should each entry date have its own index page? Perhaps each numbered entry could be summarized here?
  4. Should each numbered entry should have its own (sub)page? I think yes.
  5. Should each numbered entry have a title other than a number? Each could have a shortcut, so if the title is Lipton’s Journal/December 1, 1954/1, the shortcut could be LJ1 or just L1.
  6. Should we categorize numbered entries? Thematically? Style of entry?
