Dr. Edwin Davis, Jr., M. D., for his substantial support of this
project. He has provided constant encouragement, a gold mine
of documentation, and the necessary financial help to make this
book a reality. His often-asked question, "Wie kommt
das Buch?" (How is the book coming?), has many times provided
the cheerful push to keep me focused on completing this work for
all of us to enjoy.
