First and foremost, none of this could have existed but for the original writers, together with the editors who organized the letters and arranged for publication:
- Robert Gould Shaw — Russell Duncan
- James Henry Gooding — Virginia M. Adams
- George E. Stephens – editor: Donald Yacovone
- Luis F. Emilio needed no editor, because he wrote his fine and thorough book himself; but the introduction by Gregory J.W.Urwin in the DaCapo edition was very useful for learning more about Emilio himself.
The Massachusetts Historical Society has preserved much of the source material, especially the scrapbooks that Emilio created in researching and writing his book.
The very reliable Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner together with the FineReader software (for ScanSnap).
Graphic Converter from Lemke Software GmbH
The Apple MacBook Pro on which I ran all my development software.
The open source WordPress software and the open source MySQL database source used by WordPress.
As with so many of my projects, my good friend and colleague Chuck Houpt was an invaluable resource, from first letting me try out his scanner, to suggesting that I use WordPress when I first embarked on another blogging-related project and helped me become a journyman user, to reading much of the posted material and making many valuable suggestions.
Finally, but not least, my wife Charletta, who led me to see many things with different eyes.
