      For T.H. White scholarship, I'd look at an Arthurian journal I used
      to know -- it was called Quondam et Futurus when I published an
      article in it, but it merged with another Arthurian journal and I
      think the combined name is Arthurian Interpretations. I am almost
      certain that my grad school mentor Alan Lupack wrote about THE ONCE
      AND FUTURE KING. Try the Camelot Project website of the University of
      Rochester Library System.
