Under the direction of Robert C. Hall, superintendent of the Press, the following students have actively engaged in the production of this book: Thomas Binford, Mary [Finlay] Graham, Barbara [Rose] McBreen, William [Lee] Pease, Margaret [Lucile] Ray, William [Milnor] Sanford, and Fulton [Haight] Travis. This edition consists of one hundred copies of which this is No. 84."

One of the students involved in the making of this book, Thomas Peter Binford (1914-1983), printed an earlier volume under the direction of John Henry Nash in 1934: Memaloose by Frederic Homer Balch. After graduating, Binford went on to be involved in the publishing industry through the notable Portland firm of Binfords & Mort.
