First of all, this publication project would not have been possible without the generous sponsorship and patient assistance of Eileen Herteis (Purdy Crawford Teaching Centre). Also, I am extremely grateful to University Archivists Cheryl Ennals and David Mawhinney (2005/2006) and Rhianna Edwards (2006/2007) for sharing their invaluable advice and time, assisting with everything from providing visual images and copyright issues to student training and close guidance in the use of archival materials. In addition, University librarians, especially Elizabeth Millar, made an immense contribution to student research projects in 2007. Thanks also to the staff at the Mount Allison Bookstore for their help in producing a print version of this publication.

In addition, I would like to thank my very helpful Assistant Editors (also MtA students) Anne Herteis (2006) and Angela Hersey (2007) for their impressive dedication during their very busy schedules! Also, I am deeply indebted to Dr. James Hoyland, for designing a wonderful publication cover and to Emily Shepard for her invaluable assistance with formatting and developing the web page for this online publication.

Finally, I would like to thank the Department of History, especially Dr. Elaine Naylor (co-ordinator of women's studies) for their ongoing support; and last, but certainly not least, I want to thank my students for their enthusiasm, commitment, and professionalism. They made the task of teaching Canadian women's history a real delight.
