Special thanks

We’d like to offer a special thank you to John and Ann Doerr for their extraordinary generosity and vision.

We are very grateful to the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The Macaulay Family Foundation, Khan Academy, The College Board, and our other donors for their support.

We want to acknowledge the extraordinary generosity and dedication of our contributors. Without their commitment, Smarthistory would not be possible.

We would also like to thank Dr. Joseph Ugoretz for handling everything regarding technology—from setting up hosting, to fixing bugs, to pushing WordPress to its limits to make Smarthistory’s content shine. In fact, Smarthistory started when Joe purchased a $30 ipod microphone so that we could record in museums. (If you’re interested in the technology behind this site, take a look at Joe’s blog post here.) Thanks also to Susan Koski Zucker for her design expertise and for dropping everything more times than we can count to help with the endless details required to make this site’s design as strong as possible.

The team at Reclaim Hosting gave us rapid, friendly, smart support, as they do for educational projects across the web.
