William Robert Emmons–Where are you?
When I was at Mount Vernon, I read a three-volume work in their collection called “Bushrod Washington and the American Constitution.” This was an unpublished dissertation written by William Robert Emmons in 1991.
I would like to obtain a copy of the dissertation for my research. To do that, though, I need to find Mr. Emmons and get his permission under copyright law. (Yeah, I could argue that this is fair use and just make a copy, but I don’t want to do that.) If anybody knows Mr. Emmons (or, if he is dead, his heirs), please let me know so that I can reach out.
