Thanks to the folks who replied to my inquiry about the status of the
O'Neill material at Notre Dame. Evidently the situation is not as dire
as I originally thought!
I'm not sure why access is restricted but I'm guessing the ND library
people have a good reason. Some of the documents are probably pretty
fragile by now.
I hadn't intended to make the trip myself but no reason an academic
pursuit couldn't take place in football season (as long as ND isn't
playing Alabama again).
