Ed, the memory of that dissertation pains me. It's probably even worse than I think it was. Coincidentally, Robert B. Parker and I did our dissertations at about the same time
(1971 or so) and on the same topic: Hammett, Chandler, Macdonald. (And, as my wife says, "Look at him now and then look at you.") My title was THE PRIVATE-EYE HERO. I have no idea what Parker's title was.
