and references
There is small selection of resumes to suit a variety of tastes. (All are letter-sized paper and in PDF format, but A4, RTF, HTML, text, and DOC can be made available.)

Three people I respect A LOT have been kind enough to give me a written recommendation:
Samples of
my work
Excelsior 1919, 2007, 178 pages. A young Bostonian's diary describing the aftermath of the Great War in France and Scotland, kept by my grandfather, John Rippey Litchfield while serving in the US Navy. The diary was transcribed, annotated, and published by Dorna Caskie during 2006-7.
Singing Brook Farm Eating Book, 2009 175 pages. A sentimental collection of family recipes, each of which has a brief "backstory". While the food is interesting (it is after all an eating book, not a cooking book), the book includes access to on-line templates and publishing instructions so that anyone can produce a similar book for personal or commercial purposes; written by Dorna Caskie.
Presentations and courseware:
