I have to thank the following people for their contribution to this project. Many people have loaned me photographs or printed material, provided me with background material or scanned photos. Without them I could not have accomplished what I have so far. Amazingly, all but a couple were contacted by the Internet, a tool that has made this project possible. In no particular order, I have to thank:

Ed Deak (OK, I said no particular order, but Ed has contributed sooooo much, so he's first!)
