      I'm a recent subscriber to NOM, so know nothing of an Alan Ward who used to
      write for Footnote. However, I've put a few feelers out and will report back
      if anything comes up. That may not be before Monday for I'm off to London for
      a few days.

      The "other" Alan Ward in fact was curator of the World/ethnic/folk section
      of the NSA. While that doesn't cover New Orleans jazz, which naturally is
      served by the Jazz Section, the NSA Alan Ward does in fact play with a hot 1920s
      jazz band.

      Cheers,

      Fred McCormick.

      Sorry, maybe I should have spoken up before now, but it is likely that
      the Alan Ward you are looking for, if he wrote a sleevenote for an
      album of New Orleans music, is the Alan Ward who used to write for
      Footnote, the fore-runner to New Orleans Music magazine. He also used
      to be one of the partners in Nola Records along with Mike Dine, Charlie
      Crump, and Tom Stagg. Sadly, I think I heard that he died a few years
      ago. With all due respect to The British Library, from what I know of
      that organisation they are unlikely to employ anyone for their
      specialist knowledge of New Orleans music.
