Many people contributed in different ways and varying degrees to the completion of this book. The Penn State University-DuBois Campus library staff accommodated my research needs and processed hundreds of interlibrary loan requests for books and journal articles. In Terri Frutiger, I was blessed with the most capable work-study student one could hope for. She not only completed the aforementioned forms, she demonstrated uncommon resourcefulness and initiative locating sources and organizing material. She also saved me a small fortune in library fines. Mike Tharon helped tie up loose ends in the copyediting phase, and Chris Klinger transformed the primary documents into manuscript style. The campus administration facilitated my research and writing by permitting me some flexibility in my teaching schedule. Via numerous e-mail exchanges, Gary Largo, a fellow historian who teaches a 1960s course at Scottsbluff High School in Nebraska, offered insightful suggestions. Barbara Rader, my Acquisitions Editor at Greenwood Press, provided critical input along the way. And she was patient. A special thanks to Maureen Melino for her valuable assistance in securing permission to reprint documents and photographs. Few authors complete a quality book-length manuscript without a talented, accomplished editor. I am not one of them. I cannot imagine working with a more discerning, skillful, and empathetic editor than Randall M. Miller. His input enabled me to produce a better, smoother work. I thank him for inviting me to be a series contributor. Polly understood my preoccupation with the 1960s, especially as it related to our early history. Others will recognize their influence on the content. Callan always provided welcomed, unconditional support.
