Both the annual meeting and these Proceedings, which are the fruits thereof, would not have happened without the assistance and support of many members of the Monmouth College and Bradley University communities. We would like especially to thank President Bruce Haywood and Dean William Julian of Monmouth College; and President John R. Brazil and Dean Claire Etaugh of Bradley University. Financial support for the conference and the publication of these Proceedings was provided by Monmouth College and Bradley University.
Special thanks is due to Pamela Marshall, Jennifer Applegate and Frances Stauffer for their work producing both those announcements that heralded our conference, and this work, which celebrates it, in a manner that does them proud.
