A Dual Heritage: The Public Career of Oscar S. Straus

By Naomi W. Cohen | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

It is a pleasant duty to thank publicly those who have contributed to the publication of this book. In the initial stages of my work I profited enormously from the counsel of Professor Emeritus Salo W. Baron and Professor William E. Leuchtenburg of Columbia University. The late Roger Williams Straus consulted with me and encouraged me in my research.

I am indebted to the librarians and custodians of archives at the following institutions for their many courtesies in making manuscript materials available to me: Manuscripts Division of the Library of Congress, National Archives, Columbia University, American Jewish Historical Society, American Jewish Archives, Harvard University, New York Public Library, Jewish Theological Seminary of America, American Jewish Committee, Macy's of New York, Y.M.C.A. of New York. Dr. Moshe Davis, Mr. Justin Turner, and Mrs. Julius Kahn graciously permitted me to use documents in their possession. Part of Chapter Nine appeared in article form in the Mississippi Valley Historical Review; the editors of the Review's successor, the Journal of American History, have allowed its reproduction here.

I am grateful to Drs. Chaim Potok and Solomon Grayzel for their constructive criticisms and editorial skill. Finally, to my husband and children, who bore it all with unfailing patience, I offer my special thanks.
