Howes B498; Rader 380; Clark & Brunet 20: "The author died on September 25, 1911, just four days after the receipt of volume I from the bindery. She had been ill for some time, and was very concerned about completing the work on both volumes. Some editorial chores on volume 2 were completed by Dr. Paul H. Radin, and the index was prepared by Gertrude M. Robertson. Blair had played a major role in the preparation and publication of The Jesuit Relations, edited by Reuben Gold Thwaites. She continued to work with Thwaites on several other projects, including the Journals of Lewis and Clark."
