The 19th Century London Stage Revived!
At some expense to myself I chose to relocate several projects to my own server. The 19th Century London Stage, however, proved too large to make such a move practical. The project was deleted from the University of Washington servers in 2004 and I advised several researchers using the materials of their remove.
Much to my delight, Dr Michael Fraser, Co-ordinator, Research Technologies Service & Head of Humbul, Oxford University Computing Services, alerted me recently to the Web Archives, where it may still be possible to locate The 19th Century London Stage in its entirety. Select the most recent date at this site that will bring up the project. Until recently (1/15/05) this was February 02, 2004 but that link now appears to be broken. The link for 12/09/03 does appear to be active, however, as do several earlier links.
One note of caution: No external links on the archived site are to be trusted. The link Theatre History on the Web, for example, will not take you to the current site of Theatre History on the Web.
Once you've finished working with The 19th Century London Stage, use your browser's "BACK" button to return to the current Theatre History on the Web site.
I hope this resource will continue to benefit the scholarly community as it has in the past. How long it will continue to be available at the archived site is anybody's guess, however. With this in mind, I offer the following: if you are using this material for scholarly purposes I suggest you download it to your own computer and use it in your research or classes. I ask only that you treat it as you would any other copyright protected material: that you make no additions or deletions to it and, as you would with any other copyright protected material, that you acknowledge that it is the work of faculty and graduate students at the University of Washington. In this way perhaps the research may survive.
