Acknowledgements and Notes
This issue presents the third and final installment of Barry A. Crouch's article on the
Freedmen's Bureau. The first two installments were pubished in the May 1995 and September 1997
issues. Crouch is a distinguished professor of history at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.
C., and the recipient of numerous awards and honors for his writing and his teaching. The library,
and indeed the county, are deeply indebted to Crouch, not only for the article, but because he
donated the xerographic copies of the source material, which he obtained at his own expense at the
National Archives, to the library.
