Letter (Annotated Citation):
The problem with this is in the Short Footnote.
, on page 87, gives the following example for the
Letter, Maude (King) Hawkins to Elizabeth Shown Mills, 16 April 1972.
The problem is that TMG renders that as Letter, Hawkins to Elizabeth Shown
Mills, 16 April 1972.
There might well be more than one HAWKINS, yet according to TMG you would not
necessary know which one. The solution is to create a new source element,
[SECOND NAME], and enter the name of the author into this field as Given Name,
Surname. Place the element in the Short Footnote, replacing [AUTHOR]. This is
the only place where this element will appear, so the Short Footnote reads:
[LETTER], [SECOND NAME] to [RECIPIENT], [DATE].
I created [SECOND NAME] in the SERIES Elemental Group. It doesn't make any
difference in what group a source is created, as long as no two source elements
from the same group is in any one template. At first glance it might seem that
the easiest method of fixing this short footnote problem would be to enter the
Author's name Given Name, Surname in the Author source element. This would
show the long and short footnote correctly, but you would have an incorrect
bibliographic entry. I think it best to do it this way.
