That is a cool resource, thanks, Bert. The Square Dance History Project site has a page about it: here. (Go to that page for linked info.)

Sets in Order archive
Modern square dance - general

This is an online archive of Sets in Order magazine, published by Bob Osgood starting in 1949, and its successor, Square Dancing. The complete run of the magazine was 444 issues. The host is the University of Denver's Penrose Library, home of the Bob Osgood collection. The magazines were scanned by New Jersey caller Gardner Patton, a huge task. (You can read more in this interview of Gardner Patton conducted by Bob Brundage in 2011.)

A librarian at UDenver confirmed, "There is no indexing of these issues, but there is a full text search capability." See the suggestions on how to search the digital Sets in Order within individual issues and in the collection as a whole.

Temporal Coverage
1940s; 1950s; 1960s; 1970s; 1980s
