It seems like it should be a simple question.
I am using a book that is available on Archive.org as a source for multiple citations. I am having trouble deciding on how to identify the author. The link to the book of interest is https://archive.org/details/catalogueofoffic00washrich.
After studying the title page, the last paragraph of the Preface, and EE 12.12 and 12.13, I am still confused on how to identify the author. Archive.org says the author is Washington and Lee University, which I can understand. But I could also postulate leaving it blank, "Board of Trustees," "Committee," or even using some of the names lised in the final paragraph of the preface.
How do you suggest I identify the author of this work?
