Leonard Dinnerstein, Peter Iverson, and James Ronda all read and commented on parts of the manuscript as it evolved. John Leslie of the Canadian Treaties and Historical Research Office welcomed me and allowed complete access to valuable files there. Staff at the Library of Congress Reader Service Division and Photographic Archives provided valuable assistance. Staff at the National Library of Canada and the National Archives of Canada guided me to needed documents and photographs.

My own institution, the University of Arizona, helped in many ways. I began the research in 1983-84 while on a sabbatical leave from my teaching duties there. The interlibrary loan office staff repeatedly located items not available
