John Gardner: A Bibliographical Profile

By By John M. Howell | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

I have been a close observer of John Gardner's prodigious output since September 1965, when he joined the faculty of the English department at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. But I did not find the courage to begin this bibliography until August 1976, after spending a few days with him at his home in Bennington, Vermont. In venturing forth, I had, in addition to the cooperation of the author, the moral as well as technical support of two excellent bibliographers: Alan M. Cohn and David V. Koch, both of the Morris Library at Southern Illinois University. I welcome this opportunity of formally thanking them for their generous assistance.

I also wish to thank at least a few others among my more than one hundred collaborators. The following were particularly helpful: Matthew J. Bruccoli and Joseph Katz, of the University of South Carolina; Robert Gottlieb, Lee Goerner, Carole Frankel, and William Luckey, of Alfred A. Knopf, Inc.; Anne Borchardt, of Georges Borchardt, Inc.; Cameron Northouse, of New London Press; Herb Yellin, of Lord John Press; Jean Palmer, of Random House, Inc.; Fred Dodnick, of Bantam Books, Inc.; Heinz Roeber, of G. K. Hall, Inc.; Fabio Coen, of Pantheon Books, Inc.; William E. Reinhardt, of Book-of-the Month Club, Inc.; Lauri Goldman, of The Literary Guild, Inc.; William Ashworth, of Harper and Row, Inc.; Irwin S. Kern, of the United States Information Service; Sander Zulauf, of the Index of American Periodical Verse; Tom Maschler, Graham C. Greene, and Jeanne Sheriff, of Jonathan Cape, Ltd.; and Philip Tammer, of André Deutsch, Publishers.

Of those scholars and librarians who assisted me, I am particularly grateful to Sandy Eckenbrecht, Lloyd Worley, Kathleen Eads, and Hensley Woodbridge, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale; Karl Kabelac, University of Rochester; William A. Jones, Chico State University; Ruth Kern, George Mason University; William Heyen and John Maier, State University of New York College at Brockport; Holly Hall, Washington University; N. W. Stoddard, St. Louis Post-Dispatch; Rex Shaeffer, Rochester Times-Union and Democrat & Chronicle; Marilyn Annan, New York Times; Dorothy S. Belniak, Bennington Banner; John W. Garland, University of Detroit; Hal Hall, Texas A & M University; Virginia B. Harris, Oberlin College; Norma Hovden, University of Minnesota; Kathleen Owens, DePauw University; Thomas Quinlan, University of Iowa; Barbara O. Hicks, Southern Methodist University; Michelle Ann Kapecky, Detroit Free Press; Carolyn Weasner, Hiram College; William Hifner, Washington Post; Thomas Glastros, Indiana University; Elizabeth H. Schumann, Brown University; and Robert Buckeye, Middlebury College.

Of those friends and relatives of Gardner who assisted me, I wish to
