A Merciful End: The Euthanasia Movement in Modern America

By Ian Dowbiggin | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

In writing and researching this book I have amassed numerous debts. In particular, I wish to thank the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and the University of Prince Edward Island's Senate Committee on Research for their generous support. Stephen Berger, Donald Cregier, Donald Critchlow, Leslie Hall, Jeffrey House, Susan Martinuk, Randolph B. Schiffer, Richard Weikart, and Andrew Winston have helped me to clarify my thinking about the history of euthanasia. Dinah O'Berry of Lewis Advertising in Baltimore and David Klaassen at the Social Welfare History Archives at the University of Minnesota provided invaluable archival assistance. As always, Ginny Kopachevsky was indispensable when it came to electronic searches and interlibrary loans, as was the research performed by John Cusack and the day-to-day help offered by Anna Fisher and Deena Bugden of the University of Prince Edward Island's history department. I am also grateful to George Annas, Derek Humphry, Karen Orloff Kaplan, Mary Meyer, Donald McKinney, Timothy Quill, Ruth Roettinger, Ruth Proskauer Smith,
