Peterson's drawing and photographs on pages 63, 68, and 70 are reproduced by permission of the N.C. State Museum. The photograph of Alexander Spurnt Jr. on page 73 was taken by Allan D. Cruickshank; the one of Fred May on page 79 by Jim Sparks of Lenoir, N.C.; and the one of Charlotte Hilton Green on page 79 by Bernadette Hoyle. Other photographers, if known, are acknowledged in the cutlines.

CORRECTION—Oliver H. Orr Jr. has informed the editor of an error on page 30 of his article "T. Gilbert Pearson: The Early Years" (Chat 50:29-41). Pearson's remuneration during his student years at Guilford College was $50 per year, rather than per month, in addition to room, board, and tuition.
