About this Exhibit

This digital exhibit was originally posted as a webpage exhibit in 2003. In 2018 it was transferred to and reformatted to use Spotlight exhibit software by Sari Mauro, Digital Collections Project Manager. Some content was edited to allow for accurate description of the changes necessitated by Spotlight, or to make better use of layout options in Spotlight.

The Acknowledgements and the Project history pages found in this About the Exhibit section have been preserved from the original exhibit and their text is presented unaltered.
