I have a dilemma.

In 1979 Angela-Marie Varesano completed her dissertation, _Charles
Godfrey Leland: The Eclectic Folklorist_ [DAI v.40, no.10, p.5540-A] at
the University of Pennsylvania. I need to read this thesis to carry out
my research. Dr. Varesano has placed a restriction on her work stating
that she must give written permission before it can be sold. Two
attempts to purchase the dissertation from UMI, one in 1988 and one this
month, failed due to this restriction. The Interlibrary Loan Department
here reports that the U. Penn library indicates the thesis is

I can't find Dr. Varesano. Letters directed both to her (through the
University of Pennsylvania) and her thesis supervisor have been in vain.
I am loath to spend scarce research funds to travel to Philadelphia to
read a dissertation that ought to be readily available.

My queries:

1) does any Humanist know the whereabouts of Dr. Varesano?

2) has any Humanist confronted this problem, and discovered a solution?
