Thank Yous

The completion of this research and the creation of this virtual exhibit would not have been possible without the help of a large number of individuals. I would like to thank each and every one of you for the time you gave to help me create a public history product of which I am incredibly proud. Thank you for believing in me, answering my endless questions, and matching my passion with passion! Thank you to Michelle Hamilton, Jean Hung, Lisa Lawlis, Anne Quirk, Michael Wojtak, Louise Mantle, Alice Gibbs, Arthur McClelland, Jo Jennings, Martha Nelson, Brittany Wraith, Mah Noor Mubarik, Jamie Milner, Jodi Hawkins, and Spencer Murray.

I would also like to thank all the individuals who I interviewed as part of this project. Thank you for allowing me to preserve this part of history and for sharing parts of your lives with me. I am beyond grateful that I had the opportunity to talk to each of you. Thank you to Trudy Van Buskirk, Billy Mitchell, Clarice Sargent, Margaret Ward, Helen Stoddart, Annecke Somann, Ted Collins, Virginia Burns, and Peter Vandusen.
