    Marginalia placement choices

    judith yellen Wayfarer

      I've begun reviewing Alice Stone Blackwell's Class notes—almost 300 pages in four documents in identical page-numbered notebooks.  All pages are formatted the same way with text and marginalia in the same handwriting on every page.  The marginalia appears to be exact phrasing or paraphrasing of key points, or questions, each placed  approximately where an idea occurs. I assume the writer made these "notes on notes" for study.  As I read the the Crowd guidelines they should be inserted, but these are not insertions--they are study notes.  I've reviewed and edited two different pages handling the marginalia two different ways for review, discussion, feedback, help.

      ALSO: I checked some completed pages --no consistent handling of marginalia--sometimes omitted. will need to be reopened and edited.--later.)

      Many thanks,
