Acknowledgments

As the authors of this volume, we would like to express our deepest appreciation to executive editor Frank K. Darmstadt for his invaluable guidance, to copy editor Laura Magzis, and to the production department for its generous help in editing the text and illustrations, respectively, for the entire Pioneers in Science set. To our associate, author Dr. Katherine Cullen, we convey our most heartfelt admiration and sincerest gratitude for her assistance in putting our book together. We would like to extend a very special thanks to world-renowned author and historian Silvio A. Bedini for taking the time to speak with us about 18th-century astronomy. To the Cornell University Library, we offer appreciation for answering our questions and conducting research on our behalf. Special indebtedness goes out to the librarians at the University of Alaska Southeast and the Juneau Public Library for granting renewals, placing interlibrary loans, and their general fine handling of the many reference materials we used during our research process. We would like to recognize all agencies for providing the photographs, some free of charge, that appear in this book and a personal thank-you to photographer Larry Adkins for going the extra mile to provide necessary images. In conclusion, we warmly acknowledge all the authors and organizations mentioned throughout the book and in the Further Resources section, without whom this book could not be possible.
