This study was completed to this point only with the great assistance and inspiration of a number of persons. Any such effort is costly and this one was supported almost wholly by private donations. Preeminent among such benefactors was Mrs. E. Hadley Stuart, Jr. (Marion Stuart) who saw the acute need for substantive financial support and who sustained this project since 1977. This effort could not have been completed without her perseverance and kind beneficence, for which I am very grateful.
Others were involved, in particular the late Dr. Alice Kraissl, a long-time Franklin-Sterling Hill mineral supporter who was enthusiastic about my efforts and saw that continuing financial support was essential.
Numerous persons among those listed below made individual donations of funds and of effort; both are of equivalent importance and no distinction is made here among fund-donors and time-donors. My greatest debt is to those who have recorded their knowledge in writing; their names are listed in the bibliography. I thank, inadequately, the vast army of splendid librarians who patiently guided and assisted my efforts.
Not all contributions were equal. With fear that I might omit some who deserve to be mentioned, I thank here many persons who have been of substantial assistance in various ways. Some have passed on during the long period of my investigations and writing. I regret any error of omission, and I concede the inequities, awkwardnesses, and gross distortions of the alphabetical listing.
