initial review of Dickson Preston research note cards @ Maryland Room of Easton Branch of the Talbot County Free Library

I’ve heard chatter about the elusive and treasured research note cards of legendary Eastern Shore historian John Creighton but have seen no evidence of their existence as potential sources of research into the Lost History of Frederick Douglass on the Eastern Shore.

We recently took time to make a preliminary review of the research note cards of enigmatic historian Dickson Preston which are held within the collections of the Maryland Room of the Talbot County Free Library in Easton, Maryland.

It is evident in a cursory review of the cards that Preston had unanswered questions during his research into Young Frederick Douglass: The Maryland Years that today remain cold cases.

Historian as detective we are here to follow the trail already blazed and body forth a new trail.
