Acknowledgments

We would like to acknowledge those people and institutions that helped to make this endeavor possible. First, we would like to thank Dorothy and Michael Martich for all their help locating and clarifying sources both in the Willard Library and via long-distance from San Marcos, Texas. We also would like to thank Melvia Randle and the reference librarians at the Alkek Library, Southwest Texas State University, for all their assistance in gathering inter-library loan materials.

Suzanne P. Fitch would like to thank Southwest Texas State University and the Faculty Senate for providing a leave to complete this book and the State Appropriated Funds to SWTSU for Organized Research for several summer stipends that helped finance the numerous trips around the country to collect data. Roseann M. Mandziuk would like to thank Chet Mandziuk for his early research efforts and Mary Mandziuk for her continual support.

Also to be thanked are Nita Romer of Greenwood Publishing Group and Terri M. Jennings, production editor, for all the questions they answered, some several times. We also would like to thank the series editors, Bernard K. Duffy and Halford R. Ryan, for their forethought in providing the opportunity to add the much needed reference materials this series provides to rhetorical scholarship. Others, like Wayne Kraemer who jumped in with answers when the authors needed fresh information, we thank you too. To all who asked, "How's it going?" we thank you for your support.
