Where All This Information Came From

This website is the result of a large number of people in the watch collecting community who have pitched in to help. I am very thankful for all this help, I have learned a lot from these people.

The following is a list contributors (in alphabetical order). I'm afraid that I have almost certainly forgotten some people or some of the things people have contributed to me. If you know about any errors or omissions, please let me know!

Dan Anderson
Dan has contributed about two thirds of all the Elgin Master Records that I have.

Wayne Schlitt
That's me! I've writen up an "About Me" web page for those who think that it might be interesting to read about me talking about myself.

Kent Singer
Kent has provided me with so many scans that I can't really list them all. He has sent me literally hundreds of scans. Some sections of the Documents and Pictures portion of the website are filled almost completely with scans sent to me by Kent. When you seen pictures that is marked with things like "Courtesy NAWCC Library", "Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen's Magazine", or "Courtesy of Catherwood Library", they are usually from Kent.

Many of the scans that Kent Singer sent me were really collected by both Ed and Kent and without Ed's effort, Kent couldn't have sent me anywhere near as much stuff.
