Many other Ouray residents and business people, too numerous to name within the scope of this work

I am also indebted to the "committee"; Wendy Bazin, Bob McCulloch, Karen Rasmussen, Judy Robbins, Robert Stoufer, Steve Turk, Dee Williams, and especially Walt Rule.  I thank Walt Rule and David Jones for final readings of the manuscript, studying the marker designs, and for suggestions.

Employees at the Ouray County Historical Society's Museum, Virginia Harrington and Maria Jones, and museum volunteers Sue Babcock, Doris Gregory, Don Paulson, and Walt Rule who devoted time and energy in assisting me to locate and duplicate some historic photographs that enhance enjoyment of this book. I am grateful for their assistance.
