A Southern Family in White & Black: The Cuneys of Texas

By Douglas Hales | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

There is a long list of people I am indebted to for their help and assistance in creating this study. First is Alwyn Barr at Texas Tech University, who first suggested the topic and provided expert advice and criticism. This book would not have been possible without his encouragement and guidance. I would also like to thank Paul Carlson of Texas Tech. His encouragement and assistance were invaluable. I will be forever grateful to these two fine scholars and professors.

The research process for this study was long and difficult, taking me to four states and to the District of Columbia. There are many people and libraries to thank for their assistance with this. First on the list is Barbara Lawrence, the city secretary of Galveston, and her two assistants, Terry R. Dennis-Williams and Charmaine Wright. I repeatedly interrupted their busy schedules on my trips to and from the city vault accessing 120-yearold city records. Thanks also go to Wayne T. De Cesar, archivist at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. He led me through several miles of archival manuscripts to find long-forgotten appointment papers from 1888. A special thanks goes to the Woodruff Library Archives, Clark Atlanta University, for access to the manuscript collection of Maud CuneyHare. The people at Bennett College at Greenville, North Carolina; Rice University at Houston; the Center for American History at the University of Texas; and the Texas State Library at Austin also provided much appreciated help.

Finally, I owe a special debt of gratitude to my sister, Ginger Bowen. She not only provided financial assistance and encouragement in writing this book but also made it possible for me to leave the private sector and obtain my Ph.D. Thanks also to my brother, David Hales, for additional financial assistance and encouragement and to my friend Mark Damron for his critiques and advice.
