Lewis and Friends committee members who helped in all phases of the colloquium include Joe Burnworth, Faye Chechowich, David Dickey, Bonnie Houser, Dwight Jessup, Pam Jordan, Robert Moore-Jumonville, and Daryl Yost. David Neuhouser, Chair of the Committee, once again did most of the work in organizing the conference, no matter how modestly he denies it.
Thanks to Jan King for brilliant secretarial, editorial, and computer assistance; Steve Christensen for the colloquium logo; Taylor University Press for copying; and Prinit Press for binding.
Special thanks to Lewis scholar Jon Thorndike, Ph.D. of Belmont College for judging the undergraduate writing contest.
And deep appreciation once again to Daryl Yost, Jay Kesler, Ron and Mary Calkins, Ed Brown, Dan Hamilton, and the Borens for their support, moral and otherwise.
