A member of the Editorial Committee of the Yale Editions of the Private Papers of James Boswell since 1979, she is also the editor, in association with the late Frederick A. Pottle, of two volumes of journal in that series: Boswell: The Applause of the Jury (1981) and Boswell: The English Experiment (1986). A volume of essays on Boswell and the Life of Johnson which she has edited (and to which she has contributed) will be published by the University Press of Kentucky in Spring 1995 in commemoration of the bicentenary of Boswell's death. Dr. Lustig has held a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Warnock Postdoctoral fellowship from Yale and has had grants from the ACLS and the American Philosophical Society, among others. She has twice conducted NEH Summer Seminars for School Teachers, at Penn, on the subject of Boswell's journal and the Life of Johnson."1
