The current Taking the Trade website was created and designed in 2007-2008 by Cornelia Dayton and Jessica Linker. It has its home-base on the University of Connecticut’s History Department server—for which we thank the department head, Prof. Christopher Clark.
A pilot version of the website was created in 2001 by Prof. Woody Holton of the University of Richmond, with expert IT help from Sue McInnis and using Cornelia Dayton’s transcripts of the court documents. We take our hats off to Prof. Holton for nudging an educational website into existence, and waiting patiently for the new version!
We acknowledge and thank many colleagues for their ideas and support, including Patrick Blythe, James Shilts Boster, Robert A. Gross and the members of his Fall 2008 Hist5103 class, and UConn undergraduate Sarah Sullinger.
