This book has been a work in progress. In the spring of 2000 I started this project and began to collect data and conduct interviews.
I copied every article I could find in the Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness and its predecessors Outlook for
the Blind and New Outlook for the Blind. I was fortunate to locate Blindness the annual publication of the American Association
of Workers for the Blind. One of the greatest finds was the library at the American Foundation for the Blind. The library
contains dozens of volumes related to orientation and mobility. Within two years I had amassed a considerable collection of
resources. I began working through the materials and along the way prepared some papers for various conferences. A dramatic
increase in administrative responsibilities, as well as the tyranny of meeting grant deadlines, diverted me from giving concentrated
effort to this book. All that changed as I reduced my workload in order to devote almost all my efforts over the past nine
months to this project.
