Sponsors, Funders and Staff

The editors are grateful to New York University, principal sponsor of the Margaret Sanger Papers Project, which has served as our administrative, editorial, and research center since 1987. We are also indebted to the staff of the Sophia Smith Collection at Smith College, which served as co-sponsor of the Margaret Sanger Papers Microfilm Edition.

Securing adequate financial support is one of the most critical tasks of any editorial project. This electronic edition would not have been possible without the support of the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Rockefeller Foundation, the William Bingham Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Samuel Rubin Foundation, the Blanchette Hooker Rockefeller Fund, the H.W. Wilson Foundation, and other private foundations and individuals.

We are also indebted to the individuals who have assisted the editors in the preparation of this edition: Stephanie Zorn, Christine Haran, Sasha Dawson, and Alice Naughton.
