Acknowledgments for the Encoding Project

Many individuals have been involved in the endeavor to encode the Guide to the Adolf Meyer Collection. Lisa A. Mix deserves particular praise for her excellent coordination of the overall project. Nicolas Maftei and his colleagues at ArchProteus were exemplary in all aspects of their work from their programming design to the quality controls that they imposed for each entry. I extend special gratitude to everyone who has helped to make this wonderful resource that Ruth Leys produced available on the World Wide Web.
