It is unusual to acknowledge a co-editor, co-author, or co-contributor to a work. However, Jean A. Shafer has, over five decades, taught the technique of blood and marrow film interpretation to legions of medical students, pediatric, pathology, and medical residents, hematology and hematopathology fellows, and medical technologists, the latter throughout the country and abroad. During that period she has amassed a large collection of color slides on topics relevant to this Atlas and these form the basis for many images presented herein. She has made a singular contribution to teaching the morphology of hematological disease during her career.
Barbara Holton, Senior Project Manager, Digital Group, McGraw-Hill Company, Inc. edited the work and provided liaison with the online developer, Silverchair. Helen Parr, Online Sponsoring Editor, Medical Content Development, Digital Group, McGraw-Hill Company, Inc., supported the concept and encouraged the addition of this Atlas to the McGraw-Hill AccessMedicine online library.
