Spanish Sea: The Gulf of Mexico in North American Discovery, 1500-1685

By Robert S. Weddle | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

THIS work was made possible through the assistance of a research grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. During one of the two years' study supported by the grant, I was privileged to have David Block, then a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Texas at Austin, as my research associate. He has earned my eternal gratitude for wading through the Spanish archives with me, serving as my personal guide and, at times, interpreter, then putting in long hours at the microfilm reader, transcribing documents. His assistance in bibliographical matters was invaluable. Thanks also are due his wife, Peggy Robinson, not only for her forbearance but also for her expert assistance with travel arrangements.

Many are those who have contributed to this work, in many different ways. The sine qua non of the entire effort was the Nettie Lee Benson Latin American Collection at the University of Texas at Austin, and its courteous and helpful staff. Texas friends who helped in the planning or execution of the project include Elizabeth A. H. John, Chester V. Kielman, T. N. Campbell, G. Douglas Inglis, and Nancy Troike, all of Austin; David McDonald and the Reverend Father Benedict Leutenegger of San Antonio; Sister Mary Christine Morkovsky of San Antonio and Ogdensburg, New York; D. E. Kilgore of Corpus Christi; Donald E. Chipman of Denton; Light Cummins of Sherman; and H. G. Dulaney, director of the Sam Rayburn Memorial Library, Bonham.

From Texas to Florida, helping hands were extended by Glenn R. Conrad and Carl Brasseaux, University of Southwestern Louisiana, Lafayette; Paul E. Hoffman, Louisiana State University; John R. Kemp and Rose Lambert, Louisiana State Museum Library, New Orleans; Bobs M. Tusa, Loyola University; Robert D. Bush, Historic New Orleans Collection; Jay Higginbotham, Mobile Public Library; Caldwell Delaney and Roy V. Tallon, Jr., Mobile City Museum; William S. Coker, University of West Florida, and A. B. Thomas, Pensacola; Elizabeth Alexander and Samuel Proctor, University of Florida, Gainesville; Jack D. L. Holmes, Birmingham, Alabama; and Doris L. Olds of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.
