Texas through Women's Eyes: The Twentieth-Century Experience

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

We incurred many debts of gratitude while working on this volume. At the University of Houston-Victoria, the Academic Council provided the financial support that made the research possible, and the library staff dealt efficiently with a multitude of information requests. Shirley Parkan and Lou Ellen Callarman coped with our seemingly endless flow of interlibrary loan requests over the past five years, never failing to provide superb service with a smile. Karen Locher’s expert knowledge of Texas state documents was invaluable. She and the rest of the reference staff, all of whom we imposed on in turn, made our work easier.

Dozens of archivists and librarians across the state—and several from outside Texas—gave us crucial assistance. We especially thank Gerrianne Schaad at the University of Texas at San Antonio, Yu Li at the Institute of Texan Cultures, Tom Kreneck at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, Ruth Baker at the Austin Public Library’s Austin History Center, Nancy Cott and Sarah Hambleton at the Schlesinger Library at Radcliffe Institute, and the archivists at the Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College. Dawn Letson and Ann Barton at Texas Woman’s University were, as always, extraordinary. Ellen K. Brown at Baylor University graciously allowed us special access to the Texas Collection while we were refugees from Hurricane Rita, and made our time there pleasant and productive. Gary Spurr, university archivist at the University of Texas at Arlington, handled multiple requests for oral histories in the Texas Labor Archives. Richard Himmel, university archivist at the University of North Texas, stayed after-hours so that we could photocopy oral histories. Patrick Lemelle at the Institute of Texas Cultures, and John Anderson at the Texas State Library and Archives, were especially helpful in our search for photos. Claudia Rivers at the University of Texas at El Paso went out of her way to transmit a Farah strike poster in photographic format.

We are indebted to Yvonne Davis Frear and Mary Ann Villarreal for answering research queries; Caroline Castillo-Crimm and Margaret Dorsey for help with Spanish translations; Pat Stone, Denise Hulett, and John J. Leffler for supplying sources on the Texas birth control movement; and Gail
