Research: Simpson's Contemporary Quotations

For the 18th or 19th century, you go to Bartlett's. But if you're looking for, say, Frank Sinatra's quip about rock and roll ("The martial music of every sideburned delinquent on the face of the earth"), you need the help of James B. Simpson. His database contains over 10,000 quotations, from over 4,000 sources, from 1950 to 1988, from Ezra Pound to Desmond Tutu, searchable by name or subject. <>
