Acknowledgements

This project has been made possible thanks to the contributions of literally hundreds of people around the world.

We would like to thank the following for their invaluable contributions to this project:

The Wallace family - especially Richard, the late John Wallace and William ("Bill") Wallace for help in a diverse range of ways.

Sir David Attenborough and Bill Bailey for agreeing to be the project's Patrons.

James Moore (UK) - for advice on the extent and distribution of Wallace correspondence. By sharing results from his research over many years, he saved the project much time and effort.

Paul Wason (USA) - for believing in the project, seeing it through difficult times and helping secure much needed funding from the John Templeton Foundation.

The Charles Darwin Trust, especially Randal Keynes, for considerable help in planning Phase 2 of the project and for hosting the grant from the Templeton Foundation.

The project is also very grateful to London's Natural History Museum (NHM) for hosting the project during Phase 1, and to the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation (USA) and John Templeton Foundation (USA) for generous grants which made the project possible.
