In the process of creating this web site, many people have contributed
their time and effort in assisting us. We would like to express our gratitude
towards them for making this possible. We would like to thank Southern Illinois
University and Office of Educational Affairs for proposing the Thinkquest
idea to us and providing use of their facilities for computer work,
and Micropower Connecting Point, and Adobe System, Inc. for furnishing the software key to completing this project. We would also like to acknowledge Memorial Medical Center's Photography department for allowing us to use their scanning instrument, as well as Memorial Medical Library for use of their atlases.
We are also very grateful towards Dr. Timothy Koschmann and Dr. Paul Feltovich for their guidance throughout the course of this undertaking, and Ms. Nancy Sanchez for organizing times for computer use, and helping us get in touch with various institutions. Most importantly, we would like to express our deepest gratitude towards our wonderful coach, Ms. Catherine Hendrickson. She has spent a great deal of her time with us, has had incredible patience with our
team, and found just the right way in guiding us to create our own ideas. Her time,
dedication, and care has been greatly appreciated.
