The Lawn Resident Directory 1895-1995 was conceived and compiled by Jeffrey Plank, Assistant Provost, Research and Development and Director, Office of University Development; Rebecca Allen, Special Projects Officer for Historic Preservation, Office of University Development; and Edna Johnston, Ph.D. candidate, History, University of Virginia. Ms. Johnston directed the research for the Directory.
Five students, Justin Chornenky, Robert W. Lasher, Leslie J. Smith, John Stambaugh, and Eliza Vellines, carried out much of the labor-intensive research of examining student directories, poring over Corks & Curls, following leads in the University archives, and recording data. To them we give special thanks.
