McCormick of Rutgers: Scholar, Teacher, Public Historian

By Michael J. Birkner | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

In the course of completing this project I have accumulated numerous debts. The New Jersey Historical Commission provided early, essential support, as did the grants advisory committee of Gettysburg College. I am grateful to Gettysburg librarians, most especially reference librarian Anna Jane Moyer and interlibrary loan assistant Susan Roach, for ferreting out fugitive information about Richard P. McCormick. In New Jersey, my mother, Mildred Birkner, and my brother and sister-in-law, John and Susan Birkner, provided hospitality during my frequent visits to interview Richard P. McCormick and work with his papers at the Rutgers University Department of Special Collections. In New Brunswick, Ron Becker, Tom Frusciano, and Ed Skipworth were consistently helpful in getting me the documents I needed. I am grateful to Rutgers University for granting permission to reprint chapter five of the transcript from my article “The Turbulent Sixties at Rutgers: An Interview with Richard P. McCormick,” The Journal of the Rutgers University Library 53 (1997): 42–61.

Amidst a demanding schedule of her own, my wife, Robin Wagner, took on more than her share of family responsibilities during my frequent absences. Our children, Ben, Madeline, and Joanna, expected time from their dad that would otherwise have been spent getting this book done sooner, and I am fortunate they did.
