As I put together this website, I relied quite a bit on my own knowledge but I also turned to other sources. Sometimes I wanted to confirm what I believed I knew. Sometimes I needed to learn more. To gather all this information and organize it has been a wonderful experience for me. I thank all the historians, website designers, advertisers, photographers, and authors who have made their information available. Rather than include resource information on each page, I have gathered it together on a separate tab.  This seemed a better way to make it more accessible. I hope you will find these citations to be a beginning for much deeper and wider investigations of your own.
