ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

Appreciation is hereby expressed to the following individuals who assisted me in various capacities in the completion of this encyclopedia.

To my longtime editor and mentor at Greenwood Press, Marilyn Brownstein, for her grand conception of this project which greatly exceeded my ability to achieve. But, as Robert Browning so aptly put it, ". . . a man's reach should exceed his grasp,/or what's a heaven for?" ( Andrea Del Sarto).

To James V. Hatch, playwright, drama historian, bibliographer, professor at New York University, and curator of the Hatch-Billops Collection, for his many pioneer writings on black theatre, for the loan of artifacts from his vast collection of taped interviews and transcripts, and especially for his personal assistance in the solution of numerous practical problems that arose in connection with the writing of this book.

To Errol Hill, author, playwright, and Willard Professor of Drama Emeritus of Dartmouth College, for his efforts to secure foundation support for the completion of this encyclopedia, for his loan of artifacts from his Caribbean collection, for his many writings on the theatre which have been of inestimable value in the development of this project, and for his helpful suggestions for locating pertinent materials on the black musical stage.

To Hobson Thompson, Jr., Head Librarian of the Legler Branch of the Chicago Public Library, for furnishing information on theatrical activity in and around the Chicago area, and for making available to me all the research facilities of his library. As my longtime friend, he is also credited with assisting me over a period of twenty years in the research for this and all of my previous writings.

To Attorney William D. Butts of Newport News, VA, and Professor of Criminal Justice at Elizabeth City State University, for helping me keep abreast of numerous musical productions that came to his attention, as well as articles and reviews on black theatre, culled from his daily reading of national newspapers
