Query From Gillis J. Harp gillis.harp@acadiau.ca Dec 1995

A fourth-year student of mine is researching a term paper on women and Populism and I am struck by how little secondary literature there appears to be on this subject. I would be very grateful if listmembers could suggest articles (or books?) in this area. Also, recommendations re the key primary sources(memoirs,etc) would be appreciated. With thanks.
