This has become a group project. The story ``Shabbas
and the Chofetz Chaim'' was edited by Janina Frankel and Anna Rosen,
the editors of The Jewish Journal at Yale when it was first
published. The story ``Louis Finkelstein and Hu Shih'' was written by
Hilde Lewis, and is reprinted here with her generous permisson.
The piece ``Family History of Rabbi Yehudah Tzvi Finkelstein and
a Visit to his Grave'' was written by Rabbi Daniel Fink for his blog,
and is reprinted here with his permission.
The translation of the introduction to Siach Yitchak was done
by Joseph Davis.
The vast majority of the information in the family tree was collected by Anne
Kandel; other family members also contributed information, as noted there.
The passage from The Education of a Mathematician was written
by my father, Philip Davis; he and my mother, Hadassah Davis, also contributed
some of the stories here, and the letter, ``The Dreams of Religion''.
I also thank my parents, my uncle Ezra
Finkelstein, my wife Bianca, my sister Abby,
my brother Joey, and my friends Leora Morgenstern and Harold Schuster
for their assistance, comments, suggestions, and encouragement.
