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 wide-ranging knowledge of film, fashion and social history, design advice, and ongoing moral support.

The LBS would especially like to thank poet Bill Berkson (San Francisco, California), film historian Kevin Brownlow (London, England), biographer Jeff Codori (Colleen Moore Project), film historian Peter Cowie (Zurich, Switzerland), librarian Gretchen Goode (San Francisco Public Library), collector Vincent Lesh (Buffalo, New York), film programmer Gary Meyer (San Francisco, California), novelist Laura Moriarty (Lawrence, Kansas), documentary filmmaker Hugh Munro Neely (Los Angeles, California), collector Ira Resnick (New York, New York), film historian Frank Thompson (Los Angeles, California), TCM’s Lee Tsiantis (Atlanta, Georgia), and author Jan Wahl (Akron, Ohio). Special thanks as well to the late Gene DeGruson (Pittsburg, Kansas), Frederica Sagor Maas (San Diego, California), Emil Petaja (San Francisco, California), and Tony Salin (San Francisco, California). Each has made an unique contribution. The LBS also wishes to express its gratitude to the San Francisco Silent Film Festival, and to Gary Frank and the old Booksmith bookstore. And as well, to the many librarians who have aided in research, especially Ron Romano and the staff of the San Francisco Public Library.
