In addition to the publications cited in the bibliography, I have drawn on vast numbers of clippings, reviews, and memorabilia from Ms. Neal’s personal archives, scrapbooks, files, and letters. Many of these clippings lack date and publication information, and I have quoted them rather sparingly. I have also used other archives and collections; their names and abbreviations used in the notes are listed below. In addition, I have conducted a number of interviews; in some instances, several people have recounted their own versions of various events. Over the course of many years, I have had numerous conversations with Ms. Neal; these are recorded to the best of my recollection.
