At the Center for Biographical Research, Managing Editor Paige Rasmussen was integral to all stages of editing, design, and preparation for publication. This is her book too. Graduate Assistant Zoë Sprott’s careful eye and public relations skills have been greatly appreciated.

Special thanks to Kapiliʻula Naehu-Ramos for her beautiful painting that graces the cover, and to Maile Naehu for making the space for Kapili’s art to flourish.
