I am indebted to Mary Flagg, University Archivist, for giving me the opportunity to work on this fonds and for her encouragement and support.
I also owe a special thank you to Linda Baier, who supervised the project
and edited the various drafts of this finding aid. The staff of Archives
and Special Collections: Mary Flagg, Linda Baier, Patsy Hale, Patti Auld,
Nancy Long and Shauna Clark all gave freely of their time and talents to
make this project a success. To each one, I offer my sincere thanks.
