Capturing O'Neill: Dedication pages of books on Irish traditional music, signed by Capt. Francis O'Neill
by Scott B. Spencer
With the Irish Traditional Music Archive in Dublin and the Ward Irish Music Archives in Milwaukee, this digital humanities project has resulted in a display of signed dedication pages of books by Capt. Francis O'Neill, gifted to others by the author. The goal of this display is to contextualize O'Neill's projects and publications on Irish traditional music in the larger Irish and Irish-American experience, as well as better understand the multiple social and political realms in which O'Neill was operating at the time he published his books.
