Feral Children and Clever Animals: Reflections on Human Nature

By Douglas Keith Candland | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

MARY HOMRIGHAUSEN CANDLAND, wife extraordinaire, supplied the patience and encouragement necessary for me to prepare and write this book, along with the income from her own design and artwork, which supplemented fellowships and funds soon to be mentioned. As a capstone, she hit upon the title somewhere along the Santa Fe Trail. Our sons, Ian, Christopher, and Kevin, graciously asked about the work from time to time, but unwittingly played a major part in its origins, as their years of interactions with Kitty, Dante (Alighieri), Tory (Victoria Regina et Imperatrix), and Cleo ( Cleo Lane) inspired my thinking about the interrelating of animals and people. I am grateful to these folk for giving me such a meaningful life.

Kay Ocker, secretary also without compare, now for twenty-five years, does everything well. I cannot count the number of embarrassments of language and taste she has kept me from demonstrating. My thanks to her are longstanding and much felt.

Bucknell's people, folk whom I have now known for over thirty years, always give all they have to make Bucknell work, indeed, to make it the first of its class. I am conscious of how much these people have done to make all of our work not merely easier but better. I am fortunate to have worked in such an environment for so long a period, and I regret only that my advice has not been taken on all opportunities provided. The text was written under the grace of a sabbatical leave from Bucknell University, for which part of the funds were supplied by the Charles Dana Foundation.

During the first stages of writing, the book was well served by Beau Beegle Vent, then a Bucknell student, whose library scholarship was outstanding. I profited from his views of the first drafts and from his scholarship. Aaron White, then a student at Muhlenburg College, gave the manuscript his attention during a summer of work. Jon Laguna, Alisa Bland, David Prybock, Amy Galloway, and Tom Mollerus, also Bucknell students, gave the manuscript the benefit of fresh readings. Their cogent remarks saved all of us much confusion.
