I was reading Ralph Lee Smith's book last night trying to see what he had written himself about Prichard. The part where he found a Prichard dulcimer with a complete label intrigued me, because I don't remember seeing anything about what happened to that one. Does anybody know who owns it now or if it's in a museum?
In other news, I've asked several libraries to contact me regarding Prichard's publication, "The Cricket", to see if perhaps he inserted ads for his own instruments. Good Friday-Easter weekend is not a good time to connect with anyone, never mind during COVID. We'll have to wait to see if I can find someplace that has copies. If they're on microfilm I'll go to WV (I expect) and see what I can find.
