We could not have done this project without the help of the many wonderful people who shared their stories with us. In January, the Magic City welcomed us with the first sunshine we had seen in months. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to these wonderful residents of the Birmingham area:
|Mrs. Drake at Parker
Henry Slagle, Jr.
Two months later, we enjoyed the sights, sounds, and delicious tastes of Pittsburgh. We offer our thanks to the fine individuals in the Steel City who aided our research:
|Josh Gibson Jr.
Mary H. Page
In addition, we would like to thank:
| Jean Demaree
Dennis C. Dickerson
|The 4th Avenue District Historical Society
The Birmingham Public Library Archives
The Kiwanis Lodges of Birmingham and Pittsburgh
and of course, a big thank you to our technical genius. . .
