Stainer's collection of songbooks passed to W. N. H. Harding of Chicago, but was later purchased by Oxford University and is now in the Bodleian. Anne Geddes Gilchrist was very good on songs and tunes of all the British Isles, and knew a bit about American ones too (See her article on Wearing of the Green = Oswald's The Tulip, and it use in the U.S. for the hymn "We are coming father Abraham" in Southern Folklore Quarterly).
