Sample text

I owe a special word of thanks to Theron Schlabach, MEA project editor. Schlabach has had a central role in defining the issues and clarifying the categories which give shape to the MEA volumes. He was unselfish in sharing his own voluminous research notes. The endnotes do not adequately reflect Schlabach's influence on matters of fact, interpretation, and style. His high standards of scholarship in research, writing, and editorial critique have been a model for me as a college teacher and a historian.

These persons gave the MEA project its shape, worked through policy questions, in some cases read manuscripts, and, not least, found money. The money came from many, many generous contributors. Even if doing so is unfair to others not on my list, as MEA editor I wish to convey the project's thanks to some of the principal onesPaul Detweiler, C. J. and Wilma Dyck, John E. Fretz, Horace Longacre, Merle and Phyllis Good, David and Mary Groh, Walton Hackman, Gerald and Gwen Hartzel, Dwight and Ellen Hartman, Albert and Leanna Keim, Robert and Lois Kreider, Michael Loss, Richard and Betty Pellman, Herbert and Louise Regier, John and Rebecca Rutt, Willard and Verna Smith, Edward C.
