We are grateful to the many people who have made this volume of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Anthology possible. First and foremost is David Morse, who, in reality, serves as an uncredited third editor. His insights and wisdom improve every chapter. Others at the Foundation also deserve our gratitude: Jessica Morton and Edith Burbank-Schmitt for gathering background materials on the topics covered in this volume; Molly McKaughan for editing all of the chapters; Marian Bass for reviewing drafts of several chapters; Marilyn Ernst for handling administrative matters; Carol Owle, Mary Castria, Carolyn Scholer, and Ellen Coyote for taking care of financial matters; Hope Woodhead and Barbara Sherwood for overseeing the book's distribution; Deborah Malloy and Sherry DeMarchi for serving as liaison between the co-editors; Richard Toth, Lydia Ryba, and Kathleen McGeady for making sure that all references to the Foundation's grants are accurate; Hinda Feige Greenberg, Katherine Flatley, Mary Beth Kren, and Barbara Sergeant for finding reference materials; Anne Weiss, Robert Hughes, and Nancy Barrand for commenting on drafts of individual chapters; and Risa Lavizzo-Mourey for reviewing drafts of all of the volume's chapters.
We also express our appreciation to C. P. Crow for his exceptional editing; Carolyn Shea for her thorough fact checking; and Lauren McIntyre for entering the edits of the manuscript. Debbie Dunn Solomon, Pauline Seitz, and Steven Schroeder reviewed individual chapters, for which we are grateful. We are thankful to the members of the outside review committee—Susan Dentzer, William Morrill, Patricia Patrizi, and Jonathan Showstack—for their usual care in scrutinizing drafts of the chapters and their thoughtful suggestions for improving them. The team at Jossey-Bass—Andy Pasternack, Seth Schwartz, and Kelsey McGee—and Jon Peck of Dovetail Publishing have been key to the publication of the Anthology, and their efforts are much appreciated. Finally, we acknowledge the fine work of Elizabeth Dawson who has been an active participant in all stages of the book's preparation and production.
