Thank you to John and Emily, Julia and Casey, and Cole for being superb collaborators and for providing and cultivating inspiration for so much of this project.

Thank you to my interviewees, the Keene State Golden Circle, Keene State Today magazine, Rodney in the archives, Larry Benaquist for sharing his film, and the dutiful librarians and research technicians at the Mason Library.

Thank you to Keene State College for educating and employing my family for fifty-plus years.

Finally, a world of thanks to Mark Long here at Keene State for always believing in me. I couldn’t have done it without you.
