This special issue of the Long Island History Journal is underwritten by a grant from the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation. The Editors wish to express our sincere gratitude for their generous support and special thanks to Executive Director Kathryn M. Curran.
The Long Island History Journal thanks the Long Island Council for the Social Studies (LICSS) for its continuous support.
A special acknowledgment is due to Assemblyman Steve Englebright— a Stony Brook University colleague and staunch advocate of the University in general and strong friend and supporter of the Long Island History Journal in particular.
The Center for Global & Local History gratefully acknowledges the generous and continuous support of Stony Brook alumna Ms. Alicia Malecka.
The LIHJ Publisher and team of Editors thank Dr. Lee Koppelman for his gracious support and help during the transition in 2008/09. We are grateful to have him on the Editorial Board as a friend and advisor.
Of course, we would not have been able to carry on the twenty-year legacy of the LIHJ, if Lee himself would not have taken the LIHJ under the wings of his Center for Regional Policy Studies in 2003. He and his team of Editors have secured the journal’s continuation and growing relevance in the last five years of its publication as a paper-based journal.
The LIHJ team thanks Dr. Gary Marker, Professor and Chair, as well as the Department of History at Stony Brook University for providing departmental office space for the production of the Long Island History Journal and the Globality Studies Journal.
