The Foreword by the distinguished Janet Taylor Spence, past president of both the American Psychological Association and the American Psychological Society (her autobiography appears in Volume 2), is deeply appreciated. Thanks go to Georgia Babladelis, Elizabeth Scarborough, and the late Virginia Staudt Sexton, whose encouragement made the early work on eminent women possible, to Nancy Felipe Russo for her contributions to the earlier volumes, and to colleagues, students, and the many reviewers who encouraged the publication of Volume 3. Thanks also go to Larry Erlbaum and his staff, especially Sara Scudder.
A special acknowledgment goes to the illustrious contributors who expanded and revised their autobiographies with patience and cooperation. The assistance of Beatrice Truica in preparing the index and Michelle Thorpe and Catherine Philley in preparing the demographic tables is gratefully acknowledged. Library and empirical research, content analyses, preparation and writing of integrative chapters of this -book were made possible by the Faculty Scholarship Incentive Program of Montclair State University.
