Because he is retired, he plans to work, full- time on the proposed biography of General Ashby. Dr. Millard K. Bushong, retired history professor of Shepherd College, is currently collecting material that will enable him to write a new biography of Confederate General Turner Ashby Dr. Bnshong is particularly interested in using primary source material such as letters, diaries, pictures, and newspapers, and is appealing to anyone possessing such in- formation to contact him at his home address, "Arcadia" Route 2, Box 100, Berryville, Va 22611 or call 703-955-2163. Dr. Bushong feels that the success or failure of his un- dertaking will depend largely on the extent to which valley people respond to his request for assistance. There h'ave been several biographies of General Ashby, who was Stonewall Jackson's cavalry commander in the Valley Campaign of 1862, but they are rather sketchy, out of print and almost impossibh~ to find. Dr. Bushong has contacted members of the Ashby family;so far as is known there is no existing collection of papers about the general.
