Editors Make War: Southern Newspapers in the Secession Crisis

By Donald E. Reynolds | Go to book overview

from the Judah P. Benjamin Fund, Tulane University, enabled me to purchase microfilm both from commercial companies and from repositories which I was unable to visit personally, such as the Alderman Library of the University of Virginia and the Library of Congress. East Texas State University expedited the revision of my original manuscript by providing generously through its Faculty Development Leave program.

I owe personal debts of gratitude to literally dozens of librarians in the above-mentioned repositories for making my task easier. I especially wish to thank Miss Betty Maihles and Mrs. Dorothy Whittemore of the Howard Tilton Library for facilitating my use of the interlibrary loan service at Tulane University.

Professors Charles P. Roland, William R. Hogan, Gerald M. Capers, Frank H. Smyrl, and Dale A. Somers all read the manuscript at some stage of its development and offered helpful suggestions. I am especially grateful to Professor Roland for reading the manuscript both in its original and revised forms and for supplying advice and encouragement without which my task would have been infinitely more difficult. Mrs. Gale Nelson did an excellent job of typing and proofreading the final manuscript.

I owe the largest debt to my wife, Martha Ann Reynolds, who not only acted as an invaluable helpmate in the usual sense during the preparation of this manuscript, but who also performed the duties of research assistant, secretary, proofreader, critic, and, sometimes, chaplain.
