AcknowledgmentsThis exhibition, curated by Libby Chenault and Katherine Carlson, would not have been possible without the support of the Rare Book Collection donors and Library staff. Without the Hanes Family, there would be no John Keats Collection, nor would there be a Rare Book Collection without their eighty years of liberal and unfailing support. The Rare Book Collection must also recognize the collections, support, and endowments of the late William A. Whitaker, vital to the building of the RBC’s strong holdings in the field of English literature. Particular thanks are due to Professors Mark L. Reed, Jeanne Moskal, Joe Viscomi, and Allan Life as well as our colleague Page Life for their support of the Keats acquisition and for their unfailing support of RBC collecting and programming. As always the RBC, Digital Production Center, and Conservation staff provided assistance in the form of cataloging, general processing, editing, conservation, and exhibition preparation. For this assistance we thank: Nancy Frazier, Sandra Honnold, Susan Bales, April Brewer, Kelly Bezio, Fred Stipe, Bill Richardson, Rita Van Duinen, Jan Paris, and Andrea Knowlton. Special thanks are due to Margaretta Yarborough for her judicious editing.
