Many people have labored diligently to compile materials and data for this book. The authors are grateful to their research assistants over the years for their uncomplaining labor at tasks which were frequently unexciting, to put it mildly. They were assisted by Hack-soo Kwon, Yunae Yi, Jane Domier, and Dawn Wahler, of the University of Illinois. Illinois Wesleyan assistants include Janice Eschmann, Mark Israel, Justin Bradley, David Priess, and Josh Yount.
Financial assistance to support research work was extended by the University of Illinois Research Board, the Lilly Grant Foundation through Illinois Wesleyan University, Household International Foundation, and the Illinois Department of Commerce and Community Affairs.
The authors owe a special debt to members of the community who have facilitated their search for data. DSM personnel have been most gracious, especially founding President Yoichi Nakane, current President Tsuneo Obinouye, and senior leadership Don Schoene and Larry Greene. DSM public relations department personnel Robin Skiles and Chris Ziehmann have been most helpful throughout the project. Also supporting the search for information in the community were Rich Beal (First of America), Mildred Orrick (McLean County Tax Office), Sally Mueller (Deputy County Treasurer), and others too numerous to mention. Above all, the researchers appreciate the special efforts taken by DSM employees and suppliers, and members of the community to complete and return surveys. Without you, this book would not have been possible.
A special thanks goes to production editor, Liz Leiba for her painstaking work in preparing camera ready copy. Finally, Patra Noonan, of Illinois Wesleyan University, deserves a special thanks for her advice, patience, good humor, and consummate skill in desktop publishing.
