I would not have been able to gain an understanding of Miller & Rhoads had it not been for the countless letters, phone calls, photos, and memorabilia I received. Thank you to everyone who, whether through telephone, mail, or in person, shared a moment of their life with me. I owe tremendous gratitide to Steve Clark of the Richmond Times-Dispatch, whose supportive column put me in contact with over fifty people connected with Miller & Rhoads. Thanks to the Duvall family, Ed Miller, Milton Burke, Jack West, David Richardson, Hank Coghill, and others who I am forgetting right now. Last but not least, thank you Theresa Roane of the Valentine Museum, for your wonderful help in my research. It was a pleasure meeting everyone.
