(p. xi) Acknowledgments

We would like to thank Stefan Vranka at Oxford University Press for his interest in and support of this volume, as well as Sarah Pirovitz at OUP and Eric Cline of The George Washington University for their assistance and encouragement throughout. We also thank Lea Stirling and Ellen Perry for their comments and input on the initial proposal and their continued input during the planning and editing of the volume. Peter Stewart and Elizabeth Fisher also made helpful suggestions during the planning phases. We especially thank all of the contributors for the prompt submission of their essays, images, and image permission letters; their diligence enabled the timely production of this volume. We are grateful to the many professionals at museums and other institutions who facilitated granting of permissions and publication of images. In addition, many of the authors wish to thank colleagues (for input on their contributions and various other modes of assistance) and institutions (for access to materials and financial support); however, as space did not permit individual acknowledgements following each essay, we take this opportunity to thank all those who had a hand in supporting our contributors’ efforts for this volume. For assisting with indexing the volume, we thank Alison Rittershaus. Finally, we would like to offer special thanks to our families for their patience and encouragement: Elise, especially to Andrew M. Smith II and Eleanor Abigail Friedland; and Melanie, to Gregg, Elizabeth, and Margaret Sobocinski. (p. xii)
