I would like to thank Carol Skillings and Thomas Stanton for taking the time to help me with this project and sharing their home with me. Their patience and assistance was truly invaluable. I wish them great success in the restoration of their "Moon" house.

I am also grateful to have had the assistance of Denice Ballad who shot nearly one hundred photographs for this project.

I also want to thank the librarians at the Lansing Public Library who provided a great deal of time searching for obscure documentation.
