Glory Bound: Black Athletes in a White America

By David K. Wiggins | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

I am indebted to a number of people for their help and encouragement in the completion of this book. Jeffrey Sammons urged me to publish my essays so that they would become more readily available to scholars and the general public. He also has provided insights into into race relations and sport that have influenced other academicians working in the field. Steven Riess has always been very supportive of my work, offering cogent comments and important suggestions on many of the essays. Through his various editorships and his own scholarly work, he has contributed greatly to the growth of sport history as an academic discipline. Patrick Miller also encouraged me to put together this collection. He has given me sage advice, has been extremely helpful in reviewing my work, and has become a good friend and trusted colleague. I know of no one who is more generous with his time and has such a love for history and the sharing of ideas. I owe special thanks to Donald Mrozek, Ronald Smith, Elliott Gorn, Randy Roberts, Stephen Hardy, Bruce Bennett, James Henderson, and Dr. Calvin Sinnette for their comments and various suggestions on many of the essays in this book. I am also greatly indebted to Susan Pufnock, my editorial assistant, who always gives generously of her time and is the consummate professional. This collection would have been impossible to put together without her assistance, Lastly, I would like to thank Brenda, Jordan, and Spencer for their unwavering patience and support. The three of them arc all special and have made my life so much more fulfilling.
