Sources & acknowledgements

Here on WILD ABOUT HARRY I use a variety of sources in my research and blog posts (apart from my own collection). I always try to credit primary sources in the posts themselves, but there are still a wide variety of sources that I regularly pull from that don't always get credit. Below is a list of those databases, institutions, and individuals that have repeatedly proven invaluable.

Museums, Libraries, and Research Centers:
