NOTE: I do not hold copyright for any of these pictures. I present them here solely for the purpose of allowing students to see pictures of the authors they read and not for use in any commercial venture. All have been floating around the web for years and I assume, and have every reason to believe, either that they are in the public domain or that their use here is covered by fair-use guidelines, and that their presentation here on my website is neither financially unfair to anyone nor legally improper. If I am mistaken in any of these assumptions, I would appreciate being alerted, and I will withdraw the offending picture from the gallery immediately.
