Index of Contributors

The names of contributors are listed alphabetically by last name below, with links to their posts.  I’ve grouped them in broad themes further down.

LET ME BE CLEAR: I, the author of this blog, and I alone write the content contained on this blog.  I consider these people “contributors” because they have freely given their time and wisdom by email or phone (often both) by answering my questions and helping me better understand their research, museum exhibit, artwork, etc.

I cannot say this enough, so I will repeat it here: THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed their time and their wisdom to this blog!!
