Thanks again to all the writers and editors who generously offered their talents (generous is an understatement…these folks worked for free so that we could offer the publication gratis) to this project. This was truly a labor of love.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the contributions of Kevin Young, who offered encouragement and advice, from the very beginning of the project. Kevin was preparing an article for inclusion but, tragically, passed away before submitting a draft of his work. Nevertheless, Kevin looms large over this whole enterprise and it’s doubtful that it would have ever gotten off the ground without his involvement. He is missed by us all.
Thank you all, and I hope you enjoy The Alamo Studies Review.

I was honored to be a small part of this effort and would like to thank Jim and Tom for doing most of the heavy lifting that drove this project and made it a reality. I share Jim's sentiments about Kevin and deeply regret that he was not able to add his own contribution. Kevin is still very much a part of the Review in that he helped inspire it and encourage its development.

Thanks, Jim, Allen, Paul, and Hans. Some good people were generous with their time and hard work for this publication. I second what Jim said about Kevin and his role in this project: too bad we don't get to see the article he was working on at the time of his passing on the U.S. Army occupation of Nacogdoches in 1836.

Too bad there isn't enough available to print what he had. He is still and will always be sorely missed.

I took a gander at the Review a few months ago and meant to post an opinion. Well, better late than never. Where to begin and where to end? All I can say is it was fantastic! Nice memorial to old Kevin. I miss him and his wonderful imput here. So far as the articles by these Wiener, Boylston, Kailbourn and Reid yahoos, I thought they were well-written and informative, although I can't recall any details at this late date. The Penrod piece/ diagrams/ photos was also interesting. My only complaint about the review is that there are no advertisements for Rogaine and a bunch of other stuff to distract me from my history reading. Well done guys. When are we going to get out next issue?
