Archival work on the arrangement and description of the J.E.A. Crake fonds, the preparation of file and item level descriptions for same, and the production of this website, has been entirely funded by a significant grant from the Crake Foundation.

The Mount Allison University Archives is extremely grateful to the members of this Foundation for their generous support.

Mount Allison University student, Karissa Larocque, who carried out this archival project, deserves praise for both her provision of accurate and detailed descriptions and her eagerness to carry out further research on the creators of the documents. I would personally like to thank Karissa for her dedication to this work.

I also wish to extend appreciation to Bernard Soubry who assisted with the preparation of the virtual exhibition to accompany this guide. His work will ensure that J.E.A. Crake is more widely known and understood in the virtual world via the Internet.

The Mount Allison University Archives is very pleased that through this special project access to these private records has been greatly increased and the life and contributions of Dr. Crake may now be better understood and appreciated.
