Acknowledgements

The Commission is indebted to Jack P. Hartog, Assistant General Counsel and director of this project, and to staff attorney Susan McDuffie for her assistance during the consultations. The Commission is especially grateful to Sheila Bienenfeld for her efforts in planning the consultations, recommending participants, and offering them guidance on the contents of their papers and presentations. The Commission also expresses its appreciation to Michele Moree, who coordinated travel and other logistical arrangements for consultation participants, and who, with Lorraine W. Jackson and Frances C. Lee, provided necessary support services. Appreciation is also extended to Ruth Ford and Natalie Proctor for their assistance in staging the consultations.

Eugene Platt edited both volumes of the document. Final preparations for publication were handled by Audree Holton, Vivian Hauser, and Vivian Washington.

Eileen Stein (no longer a member of the Commission staff), General Counsel, had overall supervisory responsibility for the initial phases of this project, which was completed under the overall supervision of Paul Alexander, Acting General Counsel.
