I’m sorry that this work, inspired by you, took so long to reach publication, but I am forever grateful for having met each of you. You are the classiest group of men I’ve ever known. I’m grateful as well to all my teachers, mentors, and friends, some also deceased, who encouraged me to research and to write: Barbara Burr Hubbs, David V. Koch, Howard Webb, Earle Stibitz, Betty Fladeland, John Y. Simon, Richard Peterson, Wanda Oakey, Herb Meyer, Max Hutchison, and Jenny Skufca. At the SIU Press, Karl Kageff, Wayne Larsen, and Barb Martin kindly helped this firsttime author improve the manuscript, as did Julie Bush, a most careful and considerate copy editor. 5LSSHO)URQWPDWWHUUHYLQGG $0 5LSSHO)URQWPDWWHUUHYLQGG $0 ...
