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.

All of these people 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!!
