Without doubt, their efforts are appreciated by the site's many members as well as by the actress' many other fans. The LBS is pleased to acknowledge their efforts.
Special thanks to Barry Paris, whose ground-breaking biography (as well as dinner conversation and phone calls) have inspired this website since its inception. Also, heartfelt thanks to Christy Pascoe, founding member of the LBS, for her ongoing moral support, design advice, and wide-ranging knowledge of film, fashion and social history.
The LBS would also like to thank Bill Berkson (San Francisco, California), Peter Cowie (Zurich, Switzerland), Vincent Lesh (Buffalo, New York), Laura Moriarty (Lawrence, Kansas), Hugh Munro Neely (Los Angeles, California), Frank Thompson (Los Angeles, California), Lee Tsiantis (Atlanta, Georgia), and Jan Wahl (Akron, Ohio). Gratitude also goes to the late Gene DeGruson (Pittsburg, Kansas), the late Frederica Sagor Maas (San Diego, California), the late Emil Petaja, and the late Tony Salin (both San Francisco, California). Each has made a contribution. The LBS also wishes to express its gratitude to the San Francisco Silent Film Festival, San Francisco Public Library, and Gary Frank and the old Booksmith bookstore.
The many librarians who have aided in research also deserve thanks, especially Ron Romano and the staff of the San Francisco Public Library. They, along with the staff at a number of other institutions, are acknowledged on the Bibliography Acknowledgements page.
