[Deschler's Precedents, Contents] [Acknowledgements] [Charles W. Johnson, September 1997] [From the U.S. Government Publishing Office, www.gpo.gov] [Page xxi] ACKNOWLEDGMENTS [[Page xxi]] In June 1976 when Volume 1 of this work was published, former Parliamentarian Lewis Deschler acknowledged the valuable assistance of his successor, Wm. Holmes Brown toward its preparation. Beginning with Volume 10, the title of this work was expanded to reflect the inclusion of precedents developed beyond the 94th Congress under the supervision of Mr. Brown, who served as Parliamentarian from 1974 through 1994 and who continues to assist in the preparation and updating of these subsequent volumes. Special appreciation is also expressed to Joan Deschler Bamel who since 1965 has provided manuscript editing and special research for all the volumes. Charles W. Johnson Parliamentarian September 1997.
