Another long-term project that I finally got off the ground.  Over 70 historical players, some famous, some not, many new to 99.9% of the world.  This is hopefully just the beginning of an endless (and important) work-in-progress.
Much help is needed, so researchers, please pitch in as you can!

Good question, Nate.  That would depend on who the artitst is/was. 
For example, the late Michael Hedges will probably remain on the Contemporary Players page (as all of us may, in our distant, but inevitable future), while there is at least one living luthier (Bream) in the Encyclopedia (hope he doesn't write me that "rumors of his death are greatly exaggerated"!).  I considered that a special case due to his story of the 1940s.  No hard and fast rules (like so much of the site) - too complicated and subjective.  But now that you point it out, I would say that Historical or "Past" players include the era from the early 1800's (Molitor) through the 1940s (the young Bream and the last of the Italian popular players), while the Contempory or "modern" era begins in the late 1960's with David Lindley et al.
