Research for this project was conducted at the Württembergische Landesbibliothek, Stuttgart, and at the Institut für Hochschulkunde at Würzburg University, under the financial support of Rondeau Evans and Maclyn Burg, made available by my home institution of the University of Washington. I expresses my gratitude to my Doktormutter, Uta Poiger, my doctoral committee of Glennys Young, James Felak, John Toews, and Sarah Stein, and the scholars who have provided their kind guidance and input subsequently, including Martin Menke, Charles Gallagher, Michael Gross, Gerald Fogarty and Jeffrey Zalar, and the participants at recent conferences of the American Catholic Historical Association and the German Studies Association. I also thank the institutions that kept me employed, including the University of Washington (Seattle and Bothell campuses), Seattle University, Antioch University, Shoreline Community College, Concordia University-Texas, Texas Lutheran University, Schreiner University, Sul Ross State University-Rio Grande College and the University College of Texas State University. I am also grateful to the families Geiss and Porschitz, who graciously opened their homes to me in Germany. I also acknowledge two editors who read painstakingly and with a great deal of patience and forgiveness: my longtime friend, spiritual mentor and godfather of my children, Duane Weilnau, and my mother, Evelyn Dianne Bardoulas-Roethler. Finally, and most importantly, I express my gratitude and love to my wife, Karin Joy Hilker-Roethler.
