The Honeyman Collection is an archived exhibit of The Bancroft Library, University California, Berkeley








The Robert B. Honeyman Jr. Collection Digital Archive project was made possible through funding provided by the Library Services and Technology Act. We would like to thank them for their generosity in helping us make this important collection available online.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank those colleagues who made this project possible. First, we would like to thank our assistant Ruth Katz for her tireless work and careful attention to the details. Without Ruth, we never would have been able to do what we did in so short a time.

Second, we wish to give a heartfelt thanks to Dan Johnston and his team at LPS (Karen Evenson, David Remington, and Bob Bain) for their exceptional imaging and their seamless, steady handling of the workflow throughout the project. Thanks too to Nancy Harris in Library Conservation, Schuyler Whitman and Dean Smith in Bancroft Public Services, and Noel Kalenian in Bancroft Technical Services for their help coordinating physical routing.

We particularly want to thank Campbell Crabtree, Gabriela Montoya, Alvin Pollock and others in the Library Systems Office and the Electronic Text Unit for making the finding aid a "virtual" reality. We appreciate the sage guidance and tireless work of Campbell, Gabriela, and Alvin, from the development of the database to the final production of the electronic finding aid.

We want to give special thanks to University Archivist William Roberts, without whom we would never have been able to comprehend the complexity of the Honeyman collection. His contributions to so many aspects of the project were invaluable.

We would also like to express our appreciation to Pictorial Curator Jack von Euw and Pictorial Archivist James Eason for their generous help and comments and to Assistant Director Peter Hanff for helping us research Mr. Honeyman's biography. In addition, a special thanks to Rick Rinehart and Guenter Weibel of the Berkeley Art Museum for their help, support and input as MOAC partners.

And finally, we want to thank the Head of Technical Services Tim Hoyer for his leadership and diligence in making this sort of project possible. His enthusiasm and creativity simply cannot be equaled.

Thank you all for making the Honeyman Project work.
