From the New York Times online, November 7, 2004:

A Man of Many Words, David Shulman Dies at 91
By DOUGLAS MARTIN

David Shulman, a self-described Sherlock Holmes of Americanisms who dug
through obscure, often crumbling publications to hunt down the first use
of thousands of words, died on Oct. 30 at Victory Memorial Hospital in
Brooklyn. He was 91 and lived in Brooklyn.
