Ambivalent Embrace: Jewish Upward Mobility in Postwar America

By Rachel Kranson | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

I have been living with this project for longer than I care to admit. Counterbalancing the solitary hours I spent in front of my computer, however, were the many personal and professional relationships that developed and deepened as I worked on this book. I am honored to finally be able to thank the institutions, colleagues, family members, and friends who offered me practical help with my scholarship and the emotional support I needed to move forward with my research and writing.

In the initial phases of my research, fellowships from the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at New York University and New York University’s department of history sponsored my work. Additional grants from the Immigration and Ethnic History Society, the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture, the American Jewish Archives, the Feinstein Center at Temple University, and the History of Women and Gender group at New York University allowed me to continue developing the project. Summer funding and a research leave from the University of Pittsburgh’s Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences offered me the time and resources I needed to transform the manuscript into a book, while the Richard D. and Mary Jane Edwards Endowed Publication Fund supported the final aspects of production.

I am indebted to the archivists and librarians who ensured that I could access all the materials I needed. These include Susan Woodland, Boni Joi Koelliker, Tanya Elder, and many other archivists and librarians at the Center for Jewish History in New York City who have been generous with their time and expertise; Kevin Proffit, Dana Herman, and the rest of the team at the American Jewish Archives who were so hospitable during my weeks in Cincinnati and have continued to offer me assistance in the years since; Amanda (Miryem-Khaye)
