We are grateful for the financial support of Brock University in the form of seed grants from the President's Advancement Fund (2001 and 2002), along with a Website Development Grant through the office of the Vice-President and Provost, Terry Boak (2002).
We have also been assisted by the offices of the Deans of Humanities and Social Sciences at Brock University, whose past and present support we very much appreciate.
We are grateful to Human Resources Development Canada for the grant which allowed us to hire our Project Assistants Janice McNabb, Sandra Dee and Sheila Naylor, 2003-4. Special thanks as well to Frances Chandler, Associate Director of Research Services who guided us through the HRDC application process.
The staff of the James Gibson Library have been very helpful to us. Special thanks to: Margaret Grove, University Librarian; Phyllis Wright, Head, Collection Management (now retired); and Patricia Longo, Head, Cataloguing.
Finally, we would like to especially thank our many student assistants for their help: Kate Davis, Stella Froese, Elise Ristau, Laura Smith and Bettina Stumm. Special thanks to Erica Kelly, who has been with us from the start. Erica was an undergraduate assistant during our first summer of work on the project, and rejoined us following her completion of her Masters degrees in English (from Queen’s) and Brock (Social Justice and Equity Studies). We could not have made the progress we have without her diligence and technical expertise.
