Abstract: Warren Newman and I, as co-editors, had agreed that here we would express our gratitude and first recognition of the most generous assistance with this compilation to the several direct contributors to the present book. And we had also wished to acknowledge the others who grappled with a topic or aspect of their New England experience, but, in the end, decided that they would not submit their texts for consideration. This meant we had many appraising discussions with another fifteen or twenty persons who were committed to the project. Their ideas, and honest appraisals, have made the whole a better anthology of personal experiences, later reflections, and encouraging advice to the Editors. The various larger groups who have assisted with this project will be found discussed in the 'Introduction'. Clearly there would have been no project - or book - without the sympathy and considerable patience of the administrative leaders of the University, of the Alumni Office, and of the project planners who were associated with the former Faculty of the Arts and Sciences. The tragic death of Warren Newman in December 2013 was one long anticipated, but he had persisted with reading of drafts and suggesting modifications until a fortnight or so before his death. It is not easy to come to an appraisal of his contribution to the live word and experience of both hills, for he had for so long been intimately involved with the life of both.
