Two people have been brilliant lately.

First off, Peter Goodall, the editor at Journal of Language, Literature and Culture (formerly AUMLA) has been exceptionally understanding. I was under the impression that my article was slated for June, so I had put off securing image rights. When the publication schedule changed, Peter gave me a deadline extension that bought me the time to secure image rights, and for that he deserves recognition as the sort of editor we ought to have in more places.

Second,Nicole Dittrich at the Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center, has been exceptionally helpful and forbearing. Every frazzled and panicked email I sent her received a cool and reassuring response in a matter of hours (no small trick with an eighteen hour time difference). I am extremely grateful that she located the materials in Box 49 of the Dorothy Thompson collection for me.
