Several Newberry staff helped make this project possible. Doug Knox, formerly the Newberry's Director for Publication and Digital Intiatives, provided early encouragement and lasting support. Special thanks is also due to Heather Radke, Brodie Austin, Hana Layson, Carmen Jaramillo, Liesl Olson, Jennifer Thom, and Patrick Morris for support and assistance. Scholl Center interns Justin Bergquist and Maggie Grossman entered much of the project's metadata. Guardians of the Pullman Company Archive Martha Briggs and JoEllen McKillop Dickie helped select many of the exhibit's documents, while Joy Austria, Dan Fink, Helen Long, and Megan Samuelson of the Newberry's Roger and Julie Baskes Department of Special Collections Services helped turn up even more. John Powell and Catherine Gass oversaw the digitization of the site's sources.

Outside the Newberry, a number of scholars and individuals contributed to the exhibit's development. In addition to serving as lead scholar for the Newberry's Landmarks workshops, Jan Reiff helped devise the exhibit's thematic structure. Susan Hirsch, Leon Fink, Carl Smith, and Adam Green also offered advice and guidance to the program. Superintendent of the Pullman State Historic Site Mike Wagenbach is due a note of thanks, as is Lyn Hughes, founder and director of the A. Philip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum. Finally, the Chicago History Museum graciously loaned relevant materials from their Pullman and Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters collections to enhance the exhibit.

Funding for this project came from a National Endowment for the Humanities Landmarks in American History and Culture grant. All projects of the Newberry's Dr. William M. Scholl Center for American History and Culture also receive support from the Dr. Scholl Foundation.

Thanks to everyone for making this project possible.
