Many thanks to the staff of Sterling Memorial Library and Manuscripts and Archives for the rewarding experience of putting together this exhibit in its many forms. Special thanks to Karin Trainer, for giving an undergraduate the opportunity, to Judith Schiff, for the guidance and support, and Howard Lamar and C. Vann Woodward, for the stories and the inspiration. It was Professor Edward Ayers of the University of Virginia who first gave me the idea of turning the exhibit into a Web site and Yale University Archivist Richard Szary who gave me the needed information and tools to make this Web site a reality.
