We would, first and foremost, like to thank the Special Collections librarians at all participating institutions, who dug up and dusted off their Ege portfolio boxes (sometimes after searching for them first) and who allowed us to examine and photograph them so that their images could become part of this site. Special contributors also include:
Keith Boone, Associate Provost, Denison University. Keith has provided continued support to this project for many years by facilitating the awarding of Denison University Young Scholars grants to several Ege investigators. He has helped Greta Donley travel to nearly all the Ege portfolio locations in Ohio, as well as to the International Medieval Congress in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and to share her work on Ege with the local Granville community and to interested readers of the Remnant Review.
Greta Smith, Miami University. In 2007 and 2008 Greta traveled with Fred Porcheddu to most of the Ohio portfolios, photographed the front and back of some 500 manuscript leaves, and identified, transcribed, and translated many of them, especially the Biblical texts. She also worked with Matt Rolf to design the overall look of the current website, and meticulously uploaded images and text files to it as part of her Denison University Honors Project on the legacy of biblioclasty.
Erin Donovan, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. For her Denison University Honors Project Erin developed detailed descriptions of each leaf in the Denison portfolio, providing the informational core of the first Denison Ege website, "Circus Minimus" (2002-2007). She also tracked down a large amount of biographical material on Ege, discovered the locations of some of his portfolios at other universities, and began networking to obtain images of those leaves.
A.S.G. Edwards, F.S.A., Professor of English, DeMontfort University. A world-renowned authority in bibliography, textual criticism, and the legacy of premodern and Early Modern textuality, Professor Edwards has written and spoken on Ege internationally, has located and identified many nuances of Ege provenance, and continues to seek out information which will enrich understanding of Ege's actions well into the 21st century.
Cara Gilgenbach, Special Collections Librarian, Kent State University. Cara has consistently encouraged this project for many years, and provided us with images that were very helpful in the early stages of the collaborative website.
Heather Lyle, Special Collections Librarian, Denison University. Heather has tolerated a great number of requests to look at, photograph, and otherwise explore the Denison portfolio during the creation of this site, all with her characteristic grace and modesty.
Jill Patrick, Director of Library Services, Ontario College of Art and Design. Jill coordinated a session on Ege at the 2006 meeting of the Art Libraries Society of North America in Banff which helped spread awareness of work on Ege among North American librarians and which led to the discovery of at least one previously unknown Ege portfolio.
Fred Porcheddu, Associate Professor of English, Denison University. Fred has worked intermittently on Ege for the past 12 years, and this compilation site is a result of much detective work on his part. He and Greta Donley spent the summer of 2007 visiting many of the Ohio portfolios and acquiring images of their contents. He has especially focused on identifying the leaves from Ege's non-biblical manuscripts.
Matt Rolf, Web Technology Analyst, Denison University. Matt brought his expertise to this project through his creation of a friendly but flexible page layout in Bricolage, and of a still-growing navigation system for this large and complex site.
Peter Stoicheff, Professor of English, University of Saskatchewan. Peter coordinated the first symposium ever devoted to Ege, in Saskatoon in June of 2005, an event which helped catalyze the progress of Ege scholarship.
Kalyn Wilson, Denison University Class of 2002. Kalyn designed the html structure of the original Denison University Ege site, "Circus Minimus," upon whose core this site was fundamentally built, for her Denison University Honors Project.
Joe Ziadeh, Denison University Class of 2001. Joe made the first scans of Denison University's Ege leaves during a Young Scholars project in the summer of 1999.
