The research for this booklet was funded by the History Office of the National Park Service, Dwight T. Pitcaithley, Chief Historian. Sarah Amsler, National Park Service intern, conducted much of the primary research and created the organizational structure under the direction of Marie Tyler-McGraw, National Council of State Historic Preservation Officers Historian and Education Specialist. Participants in the Underground Railroad Co-ordinators Meeting (October 1997) and the Underground Railroad Field Study (September 1997) were asked to comment on a draft version and many made substantial contributions. Special thanks are due to Tara Morrison and Terry Childs, Archeology; Hilary Russell of Parks Canada; and Carol Kammen of the Association of State and Local History.
