I would like to offer my appreciation to the many people who helped prepare this book for publication. This includes the many archivists who sent copies of the illustrations, helped arrange copyright permissions, and graciously accommodated my visits. My thanks goes to the numerous friends and colleagues who provided suggestions and helped me make initial contacts, I truly appreciate your interest in this project. Professor Uchida and the independ- ent researcher So Hatano, of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, were especially helpful in locating images from the historic Japanese architects. To all the contemporary architects who graciously sent their sketches for inclusion in this volume, I offer my appreciation. I would like to thank the students at the College of Architecture(cid:1)Planning, University of Utah, who helped me translate correspondence. Ben Lawrence was particularly talented in editing the text for consistency and grammar, thanks for your candid questioning. I would like to recognize the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program students, James Gosney and Antonia Vazquez, who helped begin the initial research of architects and archives. My heartfelt thanks to my Graduate Assistant, Brenda Roberts, who catalogued research materials, scanned images, coordinated correspondence, reviewed the text, and generally helped in many ways for over a year. I appreciate your cheerful attitude. Thank you for your patience and incredibly charming correspondence. I would like to thank Dr. Marco Frascari for his insightful advice throughout the years. To my family who always believed in this project, I appreciate your support. Most of all, I would like to thank my husband Albert C. Smith, for his encouragement and consistent faith that this book would happen.
