Acknowledgements

It is impossible to list all the librarians and archivists who helped in searches, answered letters and gave encouragement for the project. Special acknowledgement must be made of the invaluable, personal assistance and helpful advice of Dr. Beatrice Smith, a longtime friend and colleague. The expert and cheerfu1 assistance of Bertha Storts was indispensable to the completion of this project as was also the advice and help of Sally Hogan in preparing the illustrations and help with the bibliography from my daughter, Catherine Reed.
