White on Arrival: Italians, Race, Color, and Power in Chicago, 1890-1945

By Thomas A. Guglielmo | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

This book began as a dissertation and so thanks go first to my committee members, all of whom improved this manuscript in more ways than I could ever describe. Terry McDonald, my chair, was the ideal adviser— incredibly generous with his time, thoughtful and shrewd in his (continual) readings of my work, and tremendously supportive and friendly from the very start of this project. No other person had a more extensive and positive impact on the manuscript. Donna Gabaccia, for her part, willingly read early drafts of every chapter and gave me copious, incisive comments in record time. Earl Lewis and Tomás Almaguer also have supported my work from the beginning and have improved it at every turn.

Many thanks go as well to different institutions that made this book possible. First, I am deeply indebted to Oxford University Press, especially Susan Ferber, Jennifer R. Kowing, and Marie Milton. Special thanks to Susan for reading the entire manuscript several times, providing countless invaluable insights, and tightening my writing on every page. I also want to thank the University of Michigan's Department of History (especially Lorna Altstetter, Dawn Kapalla, Dorothy Marschke, and Sheila Williams), the University of Michigan Regents, the Mellon Foundation, the Michigan Society of Fellows, and the Society of American Historians for generous financial support throughout the research, writing, and revising stages. For providing me with the best support of all—a job—during final manuscript revisions, many thanks to the University of Notre Dame, the Department of American Studies there, and my wonderful new colleagues. Finally, I want to thank numerous archivists across the country, without whom this book's evidence base (and footnotes) would be a lot more limited. Deserving of special mention are Fr. Conrad Borntrager at Our Lady of Sorrows Basilica Archives, Wayne Johnson at the Chicago Crime Commission, Debbie King and Archie Motley at the Chicago Historical Society, Pat Bakunas at the University of Illinois at Chicago's Special Collections, Rod
