Acknowledgement of Anthony Flood's Editorial Assistance

William J. Ledger, Team of Destiny: Princeton Football’s Undefeated 1951 Season (New York, Ink, Inc., 2015. “. . . Anthony Flood . . . ransacked the online archives of The Daily Princetonian and other publications in order to check facts of which I often had only a hazy memory, not to mention the scores of the games I write about and their wider American historical context. Tony . . . has a command of written English that is, by today’s standards, uncommon, and by applying it to my drafts, helped me produce a far more readable manuscript, and for that I am grateful to him.”
