In large things and small, a great many people have contributed to this study. I owe a special debt of gratitude to the following: to Paul H. Appleby, Roscoe C. Martin, and Alexander Heard for igniting the spark; to Will W. Alexander, C. B. Baldwin, Robert W. Hudgens, and Paul V. Maris for furnishing both the grit and the grain; and to Stephen K. Bailey, Gladys L. Baker, Gordon W. Blackwell, Philip S. Brown, Frederic N. Cleaveland, O. B. Conoway, Charles S. Hyneman, Katharine Jocher, Howard W. Odum, E. E. Schattschneider, Frank Tannenbaum, and York Willbern for their faith and encouragement; and to Aaron Fineberg for providing the opportunity. And, for helping me to carry my burdens during the last stages of this work, I am grateful to my friend and colleague, Ivar L. Richardson.
