I want to thank the digital team in the Norwick Center for Digital Services, John and Rob, for tirelessly working to digitize all of the materials I wanted to feature in this exhibition. Because of their work, this companion digital exhibition will allow these resources to be available for years to come.

My thanks also go out to Christine Milazzo in marketing who gave this exhibit its stunning graphics. To all of my colleagues in the DeGolyer Library who proofread, edited, and supported my work throughout this exhibition, I am eternally grateful.

And finally, to my mom and dad, thank you for inspiring my own love of travel, and adventurous road trips. Because of everything you have taught me, I know how to find my way, and "I just can't wait to get on the road again."
