Becoming JFK: A Profile in Communication

By Vito N. Silvestri | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

Special accolades to the archivists at the John F. Kennedy Library: June Payne, Allan Goodrich, Ron Whealan, Jim Hill, Maura Porter, William Johnson, and Meghan Desnoyers. Always available and patient, they have been invaluable in their advice, in directing me to key sources, and in helping me with background understandings.

And above all, a special note of gratitude to The Kennedy Library Foundation for the Theodore C. Sorensen Research Fellowship which greatly accelerated the completion of this work, as well as giving me its vote of confidence.

I have been blessed with a great support group of friends and family. Dennis Humphrey reviewed the early chapters and encouraged greater narrative development, and helped to focus the writing. Bernard Brommel reviewed the completed manuscript and offered counsel for refining the work, and generously shared grassroots audio recordings of Kennedy in Indiana. Ali and Mike Frimpter brainstormed deductive reasoning with me on Kennedy's speeches, and worked on the final manuscript. Bernie and Alex Lairo and Vivienne Leporati discussed the book with me from beginning to end, searched for resources that I needed, automatically becoming a support group for me as they have for much of my life. Fred Lairo brainstormed the title of this book with me, caring enough to make it better. Nora Esposito reviewed final revisions and helped prepare the manuscript. Barbara Rabbito helped to proofread copy. Phil Amato shared his wise counsel at various stages of this work to help its progress. J. Gregory Payne, Myra Gutin, Carl and Mary Ellen Schmider, Kathy Kendall, and Claire Andrade-Watkins offered encouragement, advice, and friendship throughout this project.
