own excellent collection; and last the several contributions are 
deeply appreciated of persons, too numerous to mention, who 
furnished random items of interest. Obviously the book owes 
much to the various newspapers and periodicals for the local color 
as well as for statistical records; whenever available, the name of 
the newspaper accompanies the quotation used. 
  I consider it a rare privilege to provide a note of introduction to 
Mr. Kimberly's history. As a life-long sailor on Winnebago and, 
like him, a commodore of the Neenah-Nodaway Yacht Club for 
1937, as well as a director of the I.L.Y.A. and former commodore 
of that organization for several years, I am happy that I was one of 
the many who urged the writing of this book and that it is now an 
attractive and highly readable reality.
