We would like to recognize those who contributed
to the realization of the virtual exhibition and catalog. James Russell
applied his considerable talents to designing the online exhibition and
videography. Karen M. Sharman, Nancy Struve, and Margaret Vetare spent hours
editing the exhibition text and catalog. Thanks also go to book designer
Steven Schoenfelder and photographer Jim Frank. The following contributed
to the videos used as part of the exhibition: Christine Bannon, Geoff Carter,
Doreen Feldman, Dina Friedman, Michael Lord, Lavada Nahon, Brian McCoy,
Michael Natiello, David Parsons, James Russell, Waddell Stillman and Margaret
Vetare. We are grateful to others who have assisted with one or both projects:
Maria Gagliardi, Patty Pinsonnault, and Bonnie Stacy.
A generous grant from the Robert Lehman Foundation underwrote the production of both efforts. We are grateful for the Foundation’s continuing support.
All illustrations are from the collection of Historic Hudson Valley.
