(What follows is a partial list of contributors and their emails at the time, a few are outdated)
These kind folks took time out of their busy schedules to contribute stories, facts, photos and feedback. Whether it was brief email notes, extensive phone interviews, or invitations into their homes to go through boxes of memorabilia...the generosity and enthusiasm of these men and woman never ceased to amaze me. My heartfelt thanks to them all.
