Transcript THE HOUSTONIAN-1940 By Way ok Acknowlkdgmf.nt . . . This volume would be incomplete, and I would be an ingrate, il there were not here set down the names of those who have worked long and arduously thai you might derive the maximum of pleasure from this, your Houstonian— 1940. To Fred Maclcey and George Yax of the Southwestern Engraving Companj and Bill Atcheson of the Gulf Publishing Company should go a considerable modicum of credit for this book. They have given unselfishly ol their time, expert ence, and ideas, and their guidance, along with thai of Jacl Palmer, lias been an indispensable aid in innumerable ways. The striking beauty of all campus views is due to the lens artistry ol Iks I Payne of Paralta Studios. The portraits in the Vanity Lair section speak more lli.ni adequately for themselves and for the ability of Paul Lynwood Gillings. but I want to add my personal thanks for his very generous cooperation in our association, All the members of the staff have contributed their bit. but especial credit should be given to P. J. Sterne, who in addition to efficient handling ol all business matters, has been an invaluable aid in shaping editorial policy: to Weed I eterson, Harry Montgomery, Frank McKenney, and Billy Miller for their readiness to help out whenever called upon; to J. Q. Baldridge and William Buschardt, in addition to their staff duties, for the staging of the Houstonian Ball; to Alice David for ably taking care of all publicity; and to Charlie Brigance for his candid photography. To Dot Hohl and Frieda McGrath for their advice and assistance on all matters editorial, and especially for their never failing optimism, 1 am most sincerely grateful. Last, but by no means least, to Valjean McCoy, for his heartfelt interest in, and his tireless efforts on behalf of, the best possible Houstonian, a very large debt of gratitude is owed. I sincerely hope that our labor has brought forth a volume which will, for the nonce, be pleasing to your various tastes, and in years to come prove itself a shuttle weaving an intensely pleasant pattern of memories in the loom of your mind, anent this year 1940.
