It gives me great pleasure to acknowledge the help of friends and colleagues in bringing this second edition of the Imagines Philologorum into the light.

Valerie Hotchkiss (formerly Director of the Rare Book & Manuscript Library at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and now University Librarian at Vanderbilt University) tirelessly advocated on my behalf to get scans of the Gudeman materials held at Columbia University.

Prof. Danuta Shanzer (University of Vienna) tapped into her network of friends and colleagues and unearthed documents from the archives of the Ɩsterreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften and Walter de Gruyter.

Prof. Stephen Gudeman (University of Minnesota), great grand-nephew of Alfred Gudeman, gave me his blessing to publish this work.

My colleagues and friends James Adams (Dartmouth), Sebastian Anderson (Brooklyn College), Amy Oh (Skidmore), Chloe Ottenhoff (Illinois), and Jessica Wong (Illinois) all supported me with constant encouragement, advice, and help.

Michael Gilleland (Georgia), whose blog, Laudator Temporis Acti, first brought my attention to "A Glimpse at Gudeman," kindly sent me the scans of it.

Jonathan GroƟ (Germany) has given his expert advice on many aspects of this site and its contents.

Without the help of Sean Quimby and the staff of the Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Columbia University, this project would have been impossible. I gratefully acknowledge Columbia University for providing the scans of the material presented here.

Finally, I thank Donna W. Hurley. Her two superb articles on Alfred Gudeman ("Alfred Gudeman, Atlanta, Georgia, 1862-Theresienstadt, 1942" in Transactions of the American Philological Association 120 (1990), pp. 355-381, and "Alfred Gudeman in Berlin, 1935-1942" in Latein und Griechisch in Berlin 35.3 (1991), pp. 121-127) inspired me to do this project.
