Acknowledgement: I would like to thank Elva Mathiesen, the nearly unpaid Copy Editor, for her work. She joined the staff after I sent an issue to the printer, and out to subscribers, with "Champinzee" in the Table of Contents. Thanks also to Drs. Morris Povar and James Harper, Consulting and Associate Editors, and to the many friends and relatives who have proofread, stuffed envelopes, and carried mailbags.

(2) Allan M. Schrier (1930-1987) earned the Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1956, under the guidance of Harry F. Harlow. He spent two years doing post-doctoral research with Roger Sperry at Cal Tech, during which time we met and married. Allan was hired by Brown University as an assistant professor of psychology in 1958 and immediately began to establish a primate behavior laboratory. He soon found that there was no central source of practical information about establishing and running a facility with caged nonhuman primates, and set about remedying the situation with the Laboratory Primate Newsletter.
